How far would you go to make a deal? When art dealer Simone Allen is given the opportunity to sell one of the late Brett Whiteley’s better paintings, she transcends all boundaries and delivers a masterclass in focus and drive. 
Any pretence at ethics takes a back seat in Simone’s quest for the aesthetic high ground and the right price in this David Williamson high-stakes comedy of manners.

Expensive tastes, art lover with determination and drive.

MINDY and KEL – late 20’s to late 30’s ideally

Smart, ruthless, competitive, Sydney entrepreneur.
