About the Book

If someone died in front of you, would you know what to do? How long would you discuss your plans before you did something? Two minutes? Ten minutes? Twelve hours?

In this darkly funny play the intellectual rivalries in a small university town take on epic proportions. Where are the police? Where is the body? Why is the clingfilm still on the salads? And is there anything left to say about Shakespeare?

Language and sexual identity are at the heart of Steve Waters' erudite and incisive look at academic life, where desire and egomania obscure the true questions of our time.
