About the Book

Suspect Culture's Casanova follows the travels of an internationally renowned artist who is curating the final exhibition of his illustrious career: an account of his life as the world's greatest lover. As the exhibition nears completion and the opening in his home town approaches, a cuckolded husband's plan to avenge the loss of his wife also draws to a close.

Raising questions about love, honesty and life lived in the pursuit of pleasure, Casanova is an uncompromising examination of contemporary sex and morality.

Casanova premiered at Tron Theatre, Glasgow, in February 2001.
