Peter George, charismatic academic, idealist, lover of life, is dead. His wife, two ex-wives and daughter gather for his funeral. As the true nature of the man and his life unfolds, so these women discover much about themselves and the lives they have lived both within and outside his shadow.

Life After George is a moving and perceptive insight into social change across three decades told through individual experiences. From the barricades of the student movements of the late 1960s to the new century with its demands for different educational strategies, the university has been central to change. And it is on this stage that George played out his brilliant, tempestuous career.

Written with passion and dangerous wit, Life After George is a compelling new drama from the author of Hotel Sorrento.
