“I wrote and directed Hotel Bonegilla for La Mama in August 1983. Bonegilla Migrant Reception Centre represents that moment in Australia’s history which reflects what has become the main characteristic of the 21st century: the movement of people between countries. At its centre is the potent image of the suitcase which helped shape my vision of the play, for inside the suitcase are the dreams and the heart of the migrant.” – Tes Lyssiotis. Written by Tes Lyssiotis; directed by Laurence Strangio; performed by Carmelina Di Guglielmo, James Harvy, Robbie Micale, Eva Torkkola, Alex Tsitsopoulos and Loukia Vassiliades. Presented with generous support from Co.As.It. as part of the La Mama 50th Mini-Fest.
