About The Perfectionist

David Williamson's "The Perfectionist" is another fast-paced and witty play written by Australia's best-known playwright. Renowned for his ability to hold a mirror to our flaws and foibles, Williamson outdoes himself in this modern story about whether women really can 'have it all...'

Having brought up her three sons, with her career taking the sidelines, Barbara wants to finish her thesis. The only thing standing in her way is her husband, Stuart, who has taken the better part of a decade trying to finish his thesis. As a tug-of-war ensues between husband and wife, we see what the consequences of actually 'having it all' could be.
