What Goes Around Comes Around

A response to Hotel Sorrento by Hannie Rayson

Publisher Description

‘Across the board female or male, a child, a teenager, a 30-something woman, an elderly man [Rayson] just gets how words fall from a mouth ... Familial conversations bubble and tumble they pass from being hilariously intellectual to astoundingly mean to boringly domesticated to gently philosophical in a single sitting round the dinner table. And we love them for their contradictions because, of course, they are us.’


In What Goes Around Comes Around, Kate Mulvany presents a contemporary response to a treasured Australian play a personal and rousing take on Hotel Sorrento by Hannie Rayson.
