This show business debacle runs the gamut of competing agencies, the bizarre actions of a desperate man and those he taints with his cynicism. Set up as a competition between two Hollywood artist's agencies, Foster, a writer on the cusp of success, vacillates between the two, unsure whether to leave his former rep, Richard Tench and sign up with the other agency headed by Linne Callow. While Tench is under thirty, Callow has seen better days, hardened by her years in the business and ready to do battle for Foster. Both Tench and Callow have trusted assistants. George Fargas has been with Tench a long time, their association both lucrative and well-established. Their boss, Julian, a veteran of the business, is currently hospitalized, long years of stress finally taking a toll on his health. Tench and Fargas have an opportunity to shine while Julian is out of commission, but they are sidetracked while attempting to win Foster back to the agency. Linne Callow's assistant, Judi, is new, a go-getter who plans to follow in Linne's steps, carefully taking note of every move her successful boss takes.

Foster worries that he has made a mistake, ignoring his wife, Andrea, in the quest for recognition; his personal life falls apart while he runs about town having meetings, generally self-promoting. But when Linne disappears, Foster is at a loss for career direction, his marriage in shambles. In alternating scenes, the dialog is tough, brittle and cruel, each team committed to their course of action, as ruthless in business as necessary to come out on top. Vicious and crude, there is no let up, all the characters snapping like piranhas with blood in the water. It's an ugly, treacherous world these people inhabit, all in the name of greed and power.

This play pulls no punches, is not for anyone who is not willing to see the world of show business portrayed at its basest. It is the tale of two competing talent groups fighting over a screenwriter. Edward Foster is torn between two representatives- the one he has accepted that is now run by two men, Richard and George, and the rival, female agency led by Linne Callow. Edward must sort out who he want to represent him as he also tries to accustom himself to this new role that fame may bring him. His lonely wife is not impressed with the changes in her husband.

The plot is basic but in Inglis hands it becomes unique and hard hitting. Readers who are not interested in stretching the boundaries of the common, usual drama will not like this play. It takes the solid perimeters of traditional comedy/satire and pokes holes right through it. This tale of greed and egos set in the land of Hollywood ends in twists that turn and dangle like a hangman's rope. It is not a nice story without any decent characters, they do not talk nicely, they do not act nicely.The dialouge and action are directed towards the To open this book and expect anything less than the absurd and the over the edge would be a mistake. It is satire, not written for laughs but for honest groans and moan of disgust. It meets that ghoulish goal well.

Talon Books has brought another quality work to the published word. The willingness to expand beyond the common place and trite is a well appreciated gift to modern literature.
