Summary

Summary

Something completely different from George Walker! Six plays, united only by the fact that they each take place in one and the same suburban motel room. Transients, lovers, the haunted and the hunted, the desperate and the dumb, each "strut and fret their hour upon the stage and then are heard of no more." Real, funny and heartbreaking. With an introduction by Daniel De Raey.

Suburban Motel contains six plays: Problem Child , Criminal Genius , Risk Everything , Adult Entertainment , Featuring Loretta and The End of Civilization .
