The Hotel Play hails from 1970, and is concerns the story of a beleaguered desk clerk at a hotel in the tropics trying to placate, amuse and occasionally seduce the widely varied clientele.
It comprises a series of brief scenes; while some are bitingly satiric and some are outlandishly bizarre, the raucous mood covers a dark and foreboding atmosphere within the hotel.
