"In this world-premiere play by Allison Gregory, three strangers wind up at a mysterious resort. One is a mountain climber who can't seem to detach himself from a large onstage boulder (in this production, a wooden skeleton of a miniature mountain designed by Robin Macartney). Another is a wide-eyed and chipper young woman named Glorie who is attached to her copy of Neruda poetry. The third is a tart, middle-aged woman named Lana (played with a dark Dorothy Parker edge by Kristina Sutherland) who just wants to be left alone. In their first exchange, Glorie leans over to Lana and asks, 'This place has that incognito feel, don't you think?' Lana is wearing sunglasses, but you can hear her roll her eyes when she responds, 'I'm resting my voice.' None of the guests seem to know exactly how they got to their own private Hotel California, but they're all watched over by Cliff, the resort's one-man staff, played with curt grace by Vincent Delaney. Cliff has a kind of spiritual-master quality, quietly revealing the characters to themselves in small moments as he's serving them drinks or delivering a deck of cards. The characters, of course, don't always like what they see." (Brendan Kiley)
