About The Production:

“This is a real Australian family in a real Australian setting, a gentle psychological thriller that no Australian should miss.” Adelaide Theatre Guide
Hotel Sorrento by Australian playwright Hannie Rayson tells the story of three sisters who grew up together in the seaside town of Sorrento.
Hilary lives in the family home in Sorrento with her father and 16 year-old son. Pippa, a business woman, is visiting from New York and Meg, a successful writer, returns from England. When the three sisters are reunited after 10 years apart they again feel the constraints of family life. A semi autobiographical book written by middle sister and expat Meg triggers the familial tensions and dramas that eventuate. The play is about family in a literal and metaphorical sense and the importance of blood ties and collective memory, true or false.
