EUROPE

by Michael Gow

A young Australian man (Douglas) has an affair with an older, sophisticated European actress (Barbara) while she is touring Australia. She thinks it was a tour romance, he has other ideas.

EUROPE is a metaphor for the so-called cultural cringe endemic to European Australians. When Douglas follows Barbara back to Europe to surprise her in her dressing room he discovers that the lure of Europe is not as simple as it seems from a distance.
