When Father Hobbes mysteriously dies at the high altar on Good Friday, Dr Jonathan Hullah – whose holistic ideas have earned him the soubriquet 'cunning man' – wants to know why.
But it is only through looking back at his own long life that answers are forthcoming. He recalls the dazzling intellectual high jinks of his circle of friends, from the High Church homosexual Darcy Dwyer (an expert on the theory of sin) to the curious occurrence of the Coburg Social Parlour's Seventh Annual Bad Breath Contest.
Compelling and hilarious, The Cunning Man is a profound exploration of what it means to be an actor in the divine comedy of life.
