The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About -

Mark Colvin’s Kid­ney Writ­ten by Tommy Mur­phy and di­rected by David Berthold, this Aus­tralian play is based on real life. Mary-Ellen Field is a suc­cess­ful Aus­tralian busi­ness con­sul­tant in Lon­don but she is ac­cused of leak­ing se­cret in­for­ma­tion about her clients to the me­dia. Later, it emerges that her phone has been il­le­gally tapped by re­porters. As she tries to patch up her rep­u­ta­tion and re­vive her dig­nity, she’s in­ter­viewed by ABC jour­nal­ist Mark Colvin all the way from Aus­tralia, and his story gives Field a new per­spec­tive.
