This award winning comedy drama, which inspired the film of the same name, tells the story of three sisters who grew up together in the seaside town of 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.
"...a heart-warming tale of one family’s struggle with loyalty and self expression… onstage performances were exemplary.” Courier Mail
