By Joanna Murray-Smith. Directed by Andrew Upton. Sydney Theatre Company. April 19 - June 8, 2013.
Fury is a play of ideas which entertains and confounds its audience.
Sarah Peirse plays Alice, an acclaimed Neurologist, being interviewed by a student journalist about her latest award. She drops many gems, including the advice that when angry it’s wise not to respond for the first five minutes, but laments that in that time the most exciting words come to mind.
Her husband Patrick, played by Robert Menzies, is a firebrand novelist. He laments that the only literary groupies he attracts look like Susan Boyle.
