Hotel

A gripping new play from Polly Stenham, the critically acclaimed writer of That Face and Tusk Tusk (Royal Court).

Secluded, isolated, the perfect desert island escape. Just what Robert and the family need. But beyond the white sand and beautiful sunsets, dark clouds gather. A storm is coming.

A tropical thriller, where nothing is quite what it seems, Hotel explores the cost of integrity.

And what does sorry mean? Nothing really. It’s just a word. It’s what people say when it’s too late. It’s a sorry little stick of a word. Slick with your spit at my feet.

Suitable for 15yrs+
