It’s the summer of 1967, and three families head away for a beach holiday.

This is an Australian Theatre Live cinema presentation.

Set against a backdrop of war and social revolution, they find themselves caught up in their own storm of secrets and conflict.

Michael Gow’s classic Australian play explores themes of loss and change, as three mothers deal with their own personal grief and their attempt at letting go. Relationships are pushed to the edge as secrets are exposed and the pressure of social change takes its toll.

Gow balances epic forces— dark and light, life and death, rage and forgiveness— elegantly and even delicately… In a way that is unsentimental, true, funny, affectionate and wise.
