Eldorado, Paperback / softback Book


Anton's got it made: dream house, artistic wife, baby on the way. And, as the smoke rises from another city saved by coalition bombs, there's a fortune to be made rebuilding the wreckage.

So what's he doing forging his boss's signature? And why has his wife crushed her hands under the piano lid? Painfully funny scenes of married bliss in meltdown and the insistent presence, on their screens and in their dreams, of the West's far-flung and half-forgotten wars - Eldorado asks what happens when the drive for success carries us past our coping point. El Dorado has previously been staged by Thomas Ostermeier for the Schaubuhne and Benedict Andrews for Merlyn Theatre in Melbourne.

It has also had productions in France, Greece.
