Set in a publishing house run by the formidable head of publishing, Bea, David Williamson's Nothing Personal is about a power struggle between two women: an older publisher and her younger rival. After asserting her authority over the ambitious and younger Naomi by turning down the manuscript of a young new writer, Bea finds her position as head of the publishing house tested by Naomi and the war between the generations begins. The battle is complicated by the head of the board and infamous womaniser, Kelvin, who is torn between his own attraction to Naomi and her ability to lead the company into the future and his loyalty to the experienced and proven, Bea.
Add in mother and daughter relationships, questionable ethics and relationships that are sacrificed for ambition and you have some of what makes up Nothing Personal. Is Bea a relic of the past? Is Naomi the obvious choice for taking the publishing house into the future? Old versus new, classic versus pop culture. Do we really lose 'it' as we grow older?
