At three different periods in time, three Americans find themselves alone, in the same hotel room overlooking the Spanish Steps in Rome: June, a young woman who works as a tour guide of the city’s ancient ruins; Lilian, her wealthy and elegant jet-setting mother; and Nathan, a rumpled university economist and the best friend of Lilian’s famous deceased husband. They each tell their individual story of how and why they are here. Their relationship to each other, what this room means to them, and why they have been called to it slowly reveal themselves. Their stories spill out, weave back and forth – each contradicting, clarifying, deepening what the others say – becoming strands of one gripping and disquieting tale. Rehearsal Period: Rehearsals will be three times a week, Tuesday and Thursday at 7:30pm & Sundays at 2pm. Performances Dates: 30 March - 2 April & 6 - 8 April 2017 Thursday, Friday and Saturday Performances at 8pm Sunday Matinee at 2pm
