Set in the Victorian seaside town of Sorrento, the play revolves around three sisters, reunited after 10 years apart and again feeling 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.
Hotel Sorrento was first performed in 1990 by the Playbox Theatre Company and won an AWGIE, NSW Premier’s Literary Award and a Green Room Award. Since then the play has had over 50 productions throughout Australia and overseas (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.” – Adelaide Theatre Guide
