Denise and RJ moved into Room 5 at the Suburban Motel from the small town where they were trying to clean up their drug-ravaged lives. RJ was in prison, Denise was turning tricks, and Social Services took their daughter away. Now they are back in town because the judge ruled they have met the conditions to get her back. All they need is for Helen, the social worker, to approve. Helen has been trying to call, but the phone in the room is broken and the maintenance man, Phillie Phillips, is passed out drunk. Then something really, really bad happens. Oh, yeah, it’s a comedy. Part of B. Someday’s season of “Comedies about things that aren’t funny” at Walking Fish Theatre.
B. Someday Productions brings the entire cycle of George F. Walker’s Suburban Motel to its theatre home, Walking Fish Theatre, over the course of three seasons. It began in June 2012 with the two plays Featuring Loretta and The End of Civilization, both directed by B. Someday Co-Artistic Director, Stan Heleva, and starring Co-Artistic Director, Michelle Pauls.

“With this magazine cover, I know it’s only a prototype, but with this cover, we decided to concentrate on the mole. This may look to you and me like an ordinary, and might I add rather famous, mole on a human face. Yet if we were to make that assumption, we would both be making a rather naive supposition.”
Candy blinked and stifled a yawn.
“Because,” roared F with wild eyes, nearly startling Candy out of her seat, “the mole is not a real mole at all!”
“Okay, Doc, I believe you. Just chill, okay.”
