Honour at Villanova
Joanna Murray-Smith’s Honour is a poignant examination of how the disruption of new love shocks four people into redefining their own selves, uprooting their understanding of love and loyalty, and forcibly restarting their emotional evolution after years of comfortable stagnation.
How do you react to the abrupt termination of a 32 year old marriage by a passionate spark?
This award-winning play reminds us there are no easy answers, grappling with the universal challenges of lost love, betrayal and new beginnings.
There are no losers in Honour, no villains, just four people finding their way as they question their lives. Are the routines they’ve created over decades comforting or stifling? What is more important: commitment to security or passion?
“Joanna Murray-Smith is the most exciting Australian dramatist of her generation.” New Statesman
What do we really know about love? How long does it last?
