Debut author Fiona West has written what the literati are calling 'the greatest novel of the 21st century'. When career maker and breaker, Paul Creel, reviews the manuscript he finds his life represented in shockingly accurate detail. He finally feels understood.

The impressed Creel invites West for a casual ‘wine and chat’ two days before his review and her book are to be published. But when they meet he discovers the book he has considered an elegant insight into the mind of modern man, was written as a hysterical satire that tears down a world full of whining man babies.

Creel leaves the meeting determined that West's book will be buried, forgotten before the year is out. But West isn't a fool, and so the games ensue. This new premiere work by one out Australia's hottest theatrical outfits, The Last Great Hunt, Perpetual Wake is a dark comedy about the games people play when their egos are injured.
