The Haberdasher, The Girl Bellboy, and The Queen of Anvondalia are the only remaining inhabitants of the Grand Hotel (in the capitol city of an unnamed South American country) that was abandoned in the wake of the recent revolution. Cocooned from the daily chaos outside, the three do their best to create a life of civility, order, and even elegance. Then, a new guest arrives. He's an American.
See it if you are a fan of parables, nonverbal acting (there are some great bits with the Girl Bellboy), and intense/disturbing scenes.
Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with narrative ambiguity or abusive power dynamics.
See it if Your looking for a short, sharp play. Well performed and some good stage craft.
Don't see it if You want it to feel short. Or for there to be any surprises beyond about half way through the play.
