I could write and say I'm sorry, but I never loved you.

That's just something you wanted to believe in."

Two couples set out to betray their partners...

A lover returns from the past and a husband doesn’t answer the phone...

A woman disappears and a neighbour is the prime suspect...

Contracts are broken between intimates, and powerful bonds are formed between strangers. In Andrew Bovell’s masterfully interconnected polyphony, an evocative mystery unravels at the same time as a devastating tale of disconnection between individuals, partners and communities.

Speaking in Tongues, which became the film Lantana, is a truly engaging story, weaving together separate but related threads and characters in an unusual series of coincidences.
