Hotel Sorrento , by Australian playwright Hannie Rayson, tells the story of three sisters who grew up together in the seaside town of Sorrento. The play first performed in 1990 and went on to win an AWGIE, NSW Premier's Literary Award and a Green Room Award.

Since then, Hotel Sorrento has travelled all over Australia and around the world (winning critical acclaim on its London debut) and has been translated into French, Japanese and Swedish.

"This is a real Australian family in a real Australian setting, a gentle psychological thriller that no Australian should miss," said the Adelaide Theatre Guide.

Hotel Sorrento follows the story of Hilary, who lives in the family home in Sorrento with her father and 16-year-old son. Her sister, Pippa, is a successful businesswoman, visiting from New York and the two are joined by Meg, a successful writer who returns from England. The three sisters are reunited after a decade apart, but soon feel the stresses of family life together.

The story of Hotel Sorrento exposes familial tensions and the dramas that eventuate after the sisters' pasts are unearthed in Meg's autobiographical novel. The play is about family in a literal and metaphorical sense and the importance of blood ties and collective memory, true or false.

Hotel Sorrento begins at 8pm, is 120-minute duration (including interval) and there is the opportunity to stay for Post Show Q&A session with the cast after the performance.
