Made your reservation for the most exciting staycation yet?
Headlining this year’s edition of the Singapore Theatre Festival is none other the winner of this year’s Production of the Year at the Life! Theatre Awards: Hotel, along with Best Director, Best Script and Best Ensemble. Co-written by Singapore’s l’enfant terrible Alfian Sa’at and Marcia Vanderstraaten, and co-directed by Ivan Heng and Glen Goei, Hotel boasts a star studded cast and an expansive storyline that literally goes on for hours.
Hotel tells the story of a hotel that opens at the turn of the century, as guests roam in and out and the staff see new faces each day. It’s an epic theatre piece that spans a total of 5 hours, and performed in 9 different languages, and rightfully split into two parts. Catch it over two days, or set aside an entire day over a weekend to catch both parts at one go!
Hotel received rave reviews at last year’s SIFA, and stars some of the absolute best Singapore’s theatre scene has to offer, from everyone’s favourite minah Siti K, the ephemeral Sharda Harrison, long time favourites Lim Kay Siu and Pam Oei, and a whole lot more. This is one show you won’t want to miss, and we can’t wait till it opens this year!
Hotel is playing at LASALLE College of the Arts from 30 June-24 July in two parts. Get your tickets from SISTIC
