The story of a man who finds answers to the questions he had forgotten how to ask. Self, a gifted writer possessed of magical stories but crippled by writers' block, braves his daily life with gentle optimism. Until he is forced to confront the cruel reality of his lot. A suspense thriller, a comedy and a tragedy all in one, this is a funny and powerful play that explores extraordinary lives destroyed and restored by opportunity. "Part thriller, part social comedy, Self is touching and funny, beautifully written, and the plot has a clever twist." Dina Ross, The Age, April 1998.
