The Lilydale Athenaeum is very pleased to present the Australian non-professional premiere of The Light in the Piazza. Set in Italy during the summer of 1953, the story revolves around a wealthy Southern woman, Margaret, who takes her beautiful but emotionally stalled daughter, Clara, to Florence for a vacation. One windy day, Clara loses her hat in a sudden gust and, as if guided by fate, it lands at the feet of the handsome Fabrizio. As their whirlwind courtship unfolds, Clara's mother is desperate to conceal the family secret and must reconsider not only her daughter's future but her own deep seated hopes and regrets as well, for reasons which only gradually become known to the audience.
