When the mysterious and sultry Vanda walks into playwright Thomas Novachek's office, he thinks the search for the perfect lead in his latest production might finally be over. But her audition quickly turns into a seductive and erotic power play that'll make you wonder who's really running the show.

The characters playing Eleanor and Henry were outstanding, and really made this production. It moved along quickly, humorously, and connivingly, and was over too soon, although it was 2 1/2 hours.
Fascinating example of royal politics.
