Nick Hern Books | Honour, By Joanna Murray-SmithShe apologises for the mess, but the apology is unnecessary. Upstairs, her house guest, the British film actress Caroline Goodall, is working out on a Pilates machine. That Melbourne arty set — when they really want to turn it on — do a very good job. As does Murray-Smith. But as we sit down to talk a fortnight before its opening, Murray-Smith is in reflective mood. And no wonder. By any standards, Murray-Smith is a prolific playwright, with more than 20 plays to her name, the most popular of which, Honour, has been performed in more than 30 languages.

An unsettling play about infidelity seen from the perspective of the three women involved: the wife, the lover and the daughter. George and Honor have been happily married for thirty-two years. She is a successful writer, he is a revered columnist. They have a perfect understanding of each other. Until a pushy young female journalist - on an assignment to 'profile' George - quite deliberately seeks to undermine that understanding. The fallout is dreadful - but beautifully and convincingly portrayed in all its painful consequences.

Joanna Murray-Smith born 17 April is a Melbourne based Australian playwright, screenwriter, novelist, librettist and newspaper columnist. Many of Murray-Smith's plays have been performed around the world. Honour has been produced in more than three dozen countries, including productions on Broadway and at the Royal National Theatre in London. A Broadway production, originally planned for with Annette Bening was postponed. In its depiction of women as variously pompous, deluded, self-obsessed, hypocritical, sexually obsequious or just plain crazy, it comes closer to being antifemale. Murray-Smith made her directorial debut when Queensland Theatre produced her comedy L'Appartement.
