A hotel room, a night, an interview. An unsuccessful documentary filmmaker interviews a successful female novelist. He claims that ten years previously both she and he were complicit in an accident of far-reaching consequences. The novelist cannot remember and enters into a dangerous question-and-answer game involving desire and identity. Have both of them built their lives on a crime that they remember entirely differently? The longer the interview continues, the more indistinguishable truth and falsehood become and the more the basic facts of their lives and realities are shaken at their foundation. THE HOTEL ROOM is a chamber play about the power of storytelling and identity; how it is constructed and how it again dissolves.
