A Full-Length Comedy in One Act Set in London

3W / 4M

Approximate Playing Time: 75 minutes

First performed at Ensemble Studio Theatre’s theatre lab in New York, this slapstick comedy of errors has all the makings of a great farce. Set in a dilapidated hostel on the outskirts of SoHo in London, two Americans find themselves stuck without means in a guest room used for storage. Throw in an uncontrollable nose bleed, two workmen and their ladder, cheating spouses, a lunatic Canadian and the equally nutty hostel manager and your audience will find itself rolling in the aisles. Is this a hotel or an insane asylum? It’s fast, it’s funny and it’s frightfully entertaining, right down to the circular saw massacre in the end. $20 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $50 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
