Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes

By Hannah Moscovitch

Paperback £24.99

The archetypal student-teacher romance is cleverly turned on its head for the post-#MeToo era in this striking play by the acclaimed Canadian playwright, author of What a Young Wife Ought to Know and Bunny.

An author and star professor, wracked with self-loathing after a third divorce, catches himself admiring a student – a girl in a red coat. Turns out the girl is a huge fan of his work. She also lives just down the street and gets locked out one afternoon…

Hannah Moscovitch's play Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes premiered at Tarragon Theatre, Toronto, in January 2020.

Arts Hub Australia

'Burrows into the systemic power imbalances that gave rise to the #MeToo movement without making us feel dirty in the process'
