Show Information

Presented by Sheepish Productions
Written by J J Fletcher
Directed by Marcus Bazley

The Last Motel is a psychological thriller that sits somewhere between Fargo and Inside No. 9.

At first the piece seems to present a classic hostage situation, played out in real time, within an American-style motel room.

A masked robber enters, carrying a helpless female bound and unconscious. But things aren’t quite as they seem.

The robber is a middle-aged widower in the midst of a mid-life crisis; the hostage is a vicar with radical ideas on overpopulation and the climate crisis; and the motel isn’t in America – it’s somewhere on the outskirts of Barnsley.

On stage, we witness a power struggle, where it becomes unclear who has taken who hostage. Over the hour, tension ramps up with phone calls from reception, knocks on the door and the police closing in.

The Last Motel was inspired by concerns over an increasing population and finite resources. The play subtly draws comparisons between the short termism of humankind and questions why natural disasters and diseases occur.
