About The Hills of California

This house. It’s called ‘Sea View’. It’s just I’ve looked out of every window, and you can’t. You can’t see the sea.

Blackpool, 1976. The driest summer in 200 years. The beaches are packed. The hotels are heaving. In the sweltering backstreets, far from the choc ices and donkey rides, the Webb Sisters are returning to their mother's run-down guest house, as she lies dying upstairs.

Following their multi award-winning triumph The Ferryman, Jez Butterworth, writer of Jerusalem, resumes his partnership with Sam Mendes, director of The Lehman Trilogy, to bring you The Hills of California.

The Hills of California plays at Harold Pinter Theatre from 27 January 2024 for a strictly limited season.
