In the 1980s, greed was good, and sellers Mike and Liz want the best price for their London home. So they deal with Clair, a young real estate agent doing her best to be successful in a male-dominated business. She tries to negotiate an honorable deal for Mike and Liz, until James appears--a mysterious middle-aged art dealer who wants to pay cash. At the urging of Mike and Liz, Clair pursues the deal with James, but no one expects what happens next. Inspired by the true story of London real estate agent Suzy Lamplugh and her unsolved disappearance, Martin Crimp’s Dealing With Clair is a chilling indictment of bourgeois materialism and the importance of personal honor and responsibility.
