Hannie Rayson engages with the national conversation and rehearses the big debates of our time. She uses family as a platform to discuss these issues. Hotel Sorrento, Inheritance, Life After George and the provocative Two Brothers make up her most influential works. She talks freely about her influences, her working methods and her urbanity.

This title consists of a short filmed interview (approx 30 mins) with the playwright discussing her plays and writing methods; short 'lesson starter' films about each play and about curriculum concerns; accessible and informed commentary; easy to use chapters and menus; teachers notes; the writer reading a passage from one of her plays.

The writer discusses: key literary figures; development of her ideas and themes; motivation of her characters; adaptation of the texts; dramaturgy and staging of her plays; social and historical context of her plays; inspirational sources for her plays; tips for young writers.
