From the author of Glenn and Inexpressible Island comes this scathing satiric play about sex, power and the Canadian newspaper industry.

Lionel K. Biggar, newspaper baron, aspiring English Lord and megalo-maniac, and Trent, a burnt-out liberal journalist formerly in Biggar's employ, are kidnapped from a shareholder's meeting by Eve, shape-shifting terrorist and nemesis. Chained back to back in a dungeon cell,the two men find themselves in a nebulous zone where ideological mind games are the order of the day. The stakes of these games? The future itself.

Clout offers no easy resolutions, no back door out of the story, no final exit.

David Young is best known for his plays Glenn (Stratford Festival, 1999) and Inexpressible Island. His other plays (with Paul LeDoux) include Fire and Love Is Strange. David is the author of two novels and has written extensively for radio, television, and film. In a former life, he was President of the Coach House Press for ten years.
