Description Murray-Smith's attentions centre on the relationships of young adults, in this case Ridge and his three lovers. Murray Smith: "was written out an amused and confused engagement with both the fantastic and prosaic dimensions of contemporary love-life...The fluidity of the play takes its cue from the fluidity of our internal conversations, where what we think we ought to be or want struggles with how we really are and the inexplicable ambitions of the heart."
