Hotel Sorrento by Hannie Rayson returns to the Shirley Burke Theatre in June as part of HIT Productions twenty-year anniversary tour. This classic Australian play, which inspired the film of the same name, tells the story of three sisters who grew up in the seaside town of Sorrento, Victoria.
Hilary still lives in the family home 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 ties and constraints of family life.Meg's semi-autobiographical book triggers underlying familial tensions, and drama ensues.
A play about family, blood ties and the strength of collective memory, Hotel Sorrento is a distinctly Australian play by one of the nation's best-loved playwrights. For those who loved Hannie Rayson's Hello Beautiful at Kingston Arts in 2017, this is a night at the theatre not to be missed!
