Suburban Motel contains six plays, united only by the fact that they each take place in one and the same suburban motel room. Transients, lovers, the haunted and the hunted, the desperate and the dumb, each “strut and fret their hour upon the stage and then are heard of no more.” Real, funny, and heartbreaking.
With an introduction by Daniel De Raey.
