A midsummer evening. Deep blue sky and a soft breeze.
The tired sun slowly falls in the west. To the east, a cracked, cream building glimmers on the horizon. Neon lights flash ‘Heartbreak Hotel‘.
We are on the Greenwich Peninsula with the Thames flowing to our left. But as we check in at the hotel reception and look at the faded posters that line the walls, we know we have arrived in a place of lost love and broken dreams.
From room to room, we are introduced to many different people. Some are funny, some are tragic, all are residents at the hotel.
This is immersive theatre at its entertaining, cruellest best. Many of the people we meet are instantly recognisable, for we have all been residents at Heartbreak Hotel at one time or another.
