Hotel Sorrento

This award winning Australian play, which inspired the film of the same name, tells the story of three sisters who grew up together in the seaside town Sorrento.

Hilary lives in the family home in Sorrento with her father and 16 year-old son. Pippa, a business woman, is visiting from New York and Meg, a successful writer, returns from England. When the three sisters are reunited after 10 years apart they again feel the constraints of family life. A semi autobiographical book written by middle sister and expat Meg triggers the familial tensions and dramas that eventuate. The play is about family in a literal and metaphorical sense and the importance of blood ties and collective memory, true or false.

Tuesday 31 July at 7.30pm
Wednesday 1 August at 7.30pm
Thursday 2 August at 1pm & 7.30pm

Letters To Lindy - Lindy Chamberlain's 30 Year Fight for Justice

The case of Azaria Chamberlain - Missing? Murdered? Taken?
A mother accused. A nation - captivated, obsessed and divided.

A mother’s love and devotion Letters to Lindy paints a singular portrait of the heartbreak, wisdom and resilience of, Lindy Chamberlain, a grieving mother and her 30 year fight for justice. 

Filled with humour and heartbreak this poignant and moving play by Alana Valentine (Parramatta Girls) about an iconic Australian story is a major theatre work of national significance that is not to be missed! 

“…a fascinating collage depicting Australian attitudes to grief, justice, celebrity, and to women who do not conform to expectations…Cronin's pitch-perfect Lindy… is a warm, earthy, personable focal point in an evening that rises strongly in the final minutes to pay tribute to Chamberlain's resilience and to the child she lost.” -
Jason Blak, The Sydney Morning Heral
