The Last Hotel
By Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh

20:00, Sat 30th November 2019 - Mon 2nd December 2019 at Fitzpatrick Hall, Queens' College
Michaelmas Week 7 to Week 8

"And still this need to be watched, to be awed, to be loved in each second, and feel my throat close with that need, my heart ache with that need, my stomach sour, my brain tear with that need".

A silent caretaker stands alone in a hotel. This is the location an English couple have chosen to meet with an Irish Woman, offering her an unnamed service. Over the course of the night, each of them must face what they fear. As the music envelopes all, not everyone will live through the night.

A show combining theatre and opera, Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh's 'The Last Hotel' is a poignant and visceral exploration of love and death in modern day capitalist society. Two of Ireland's leading artists, Walsh (multi-award winning playwright, screenwriter and Tony Award winner in 2012 for the book of the musical 'Once' ) and Dennehy (founder of the Crash ensemble and renowned composer) create a truly breathtaking work that reaches the heights of what modern opera can achieve.

"And death falls to the floor - and with new skin - take to the stars. Rise above and float. Disappear into the ether. Past withers. Space eases me to rest. No eyes on me, no words to hear - just this floating. This forgetting. This beginning. This new".

CWs: Suicide; Mental Health; Scenes of violence.
