An official and unofficial fellow drink at the bar. A lone child plays the arcade. The swimming pool licks itself. Front desk checks in. A coyote roams the premises. And a glacier waits for a passing elder. Set in a Holiday Inn Holidome – a brand of the franchise that proliferated the United States in the 1970’s & 80’s as a resort-like setting for the middle class – and in the middlest part of the country, where quiet and subtle magic occur, a family checks in to escape their home, six blocks away.
"A super-odd playlet about a Kansas Holidome that reaches consciousness and begins to observe its denizens. Richard Thieriot is purely wonderful as an oilfield lobbyist giving a sweaty presentation about coyote eradication, and the play's geologic time scale-a glacier slowly comes and carries the hotel complex away-strikes a interesting combined note of despair and non-anthropocentric hope."

See it if Hotel with life as describe. The dance of rain storms is excellent. Small casts. This is a 70-minute play that is well worth going to see.
Don't see it if Not a big budget play. If not Open minded, not for you.
