Van De Maar Papers

Date: 13 Jun 2019

Levi Van De Maar – noted industrialist and self-made billionaire – has died, leaving friends and relatives to circle like sharks for their piece of the empire.

When a stack of his memoirs are discovered with instructions they be published, his cold-blooded widow, the family black sheep, an out-of-luck publisher and an uninspired illustrator all vie for their shot at legacy.

Written by Alexander Lee-Rekers, Van De Maar Papers is a story of family, reputation, and ambition.

Bonds are formed, plans are hatched, empires rise and fall all over a dead man’s gift to the world – a thousand handwritten pages of surreal, hard-core erotica.

Camilla Turnbull directs. Melissa Hume, Jessie Lancaster, Tom Matthews, Lucy Miller, Nathalie Murray, Terry Serio, Sophie Strykowski and Simon Thomson feature.
