A humorous and acutely observed story of the friendship between four middle-aged women, refracted through their relationship to the late husband (Alec, a renowned intellectual and scientific genius) of one of them, Meridee. The once-university pals meet in the Blue Mountains at the house of Meridee after Alec's death. As the evening progresses, long buried secrets surface and events take a somewhat wicked turn. De Groen's black comedy begins with laughs as the wine flows, but becomes an increasingly tense and convoluted piece that is given an absorbing workout as long -buried secrets are revealed and moralities of various kinds are questioned.
