OCTOBER 27 @ 6PM (SOLD OUT)
Monk Parrots, Inc., Open Channel Creations, LLC and Roger Smith Arts will present, for the first time as a site-specific event,
HOTEL ROOM TRILOGY is a trio of one-act plays that take place in a New York City hotel room across different periods in recent history. The event will take place in a room at the hotel and include an audience of only 10 for each performance, creating an intimate, voyeuristic experience of mood and menace for those who “check in” for the 75 minute experience.
The first of the trilogy, “TRICKS”, set in 1969, is a study in identity and psycho-sexual tension that features art-horror film star Larry Fessenden, Rob Sheridan, and Megan McQuillan. “STARR”, set in the present, is a world premiere adaptation of Mr. Gifford’s short story “Room 584, The Starr Hotel” from his book American Falls, and features Darrell Larson as a man on the run from the law, and, himself. “BLACKOUT”, a quiet, magical story set in candlelight during a blackout in New York City in 1936, features Luke Leonard and Tilly Scott. Overseeing the action as the hotel’s Bellboy and Maid are Joey LePage and Keely Hunt, respectively.
