When young Sydney bankers, Phil and Phoebe, and Jasper, a debt collector, head to the Coogee Bay Hotel, it's in the hope of having some fun and maybe for Jasper to pick up a backpacker... Instead they meet Corisande, a young English traveller whose carefree beauty entrances them all. Soon Corisande is living with Phil and Phoebe, the perfect housemate… and source of desire. As sexual tension mounts among the group, suddenly their world is turned upside down by the arrival of Corisande's brother Clive, whose dangerous presence comes to threaten their entire existence. A fast-paced comedy thriller for adults. Shortlisted for the 2004 Phillip Parson's Young Playwrights Award.
'Backpacker's clever characters are intertwined like a crime novel and the final twist is nothing less than cinematic...It's a ride, man, it's a ride.' Luke Buckle, www.the blurb.com.au, Issue 41
