Joanna Murray-Smith’s new play Berlin currently has its world premiere production at Melbourne Theatre Company (see page 46). In Sydney, the Ensemble is staging her 1995 play Honour, which has become a modern Australian classic. George and Honor have been happily married for 32 years. She is a successful writer, he is a revered columnist. Everything seems perfect until a pushy young journalist comes to interview George, and he leaves his wife and 24-year old daughter to be with her. Exploring long-term relationships and infidelity, Honour has been staged around the world. Kate Champion directs the play for the Ensemble with a cast including Lucy Bell and Huw Higginson.

Limelight Editor’s Choice


Honor (Lucy Bell, Marjorie Prime) and George have been married for 32 years, and, as in all good marriages, have made some compromises along the way. While George forged his career as a writer, Honor left her promising literary career of her own and dived into motherhood – with no regrets. Their world seems unshakeable – until young and tenacious Claudia arrives on the scene and disrupts the equilibrium of their seemingly perfect lives.

Fascinating, illuminating and funny, Joanna Murray-Smith subtly cracks open the complexities of a modern relationship from every angle, laying bare our capacity to love, hurt and deceive those around us. A talented ensemble bring the intergenerational differences to light in this thrilling and insightful modern Australian classic.
