Welcome to the Between Worlds Hotel!
something, too afraid to commit to anything or anyone because the
only future he can see is his inevitable end. He is intent on drowning
his career at the bottom of a whisky bottle and driving hard and
fast on the highway of self-destructive hedonism. How long before
he crashes and destroys everything?
Less than an
hour ago Colin drove his car into a tree. He finds himself in a
hotel between worlds, where a series of bizarre companions take
him on a journey of self-discovery: The Magus, fortune teller extraordinaire;
Jessie a bawdy cleaner; The Chairman of some board or other; the
mysterious Dr S and Laura.
What does Colin
really discover about life and love during his stay Between Worlds
and will he ever get a second chance?
funny and profoundly moving, Between Worlds is Melmoth's third UK
premiere this year, following the sell-out 'To WH' and the critically
acclaimed 'Stay With Me' at Greenwich Playhouse.
