Dark Comedy Hotel At The Lantern

Artwork: Moira Kenny
ArtGroupie presents ‘Hotel’ as part of the Shiny New Festival 2016 at Liverpool’s Lantern Theatre later this month. If only the walls of a hotel room could talk. One room, three separate stories, strangers each with a tale to tell; Hotel is a dark comedy that takes the audience behind the ‘do not disturb’ sign. Featuring A couple who celebrate their anniversary, with a difference, a clown who may be happy on the outside but what’s going on behind that painted smile? And a lady who checks in, to audio record a shocking confession. ArtGroupie brings to the stage these surreal fables, written and directed by John Maguire (‘BRUISE’, ‘WEAVE’, ‘PORNOVISION’) and co-directed by Moira Kenny from The Sound Agents (‘The Curious Disappearance of Mister Foo’).
