HOT L BALTIMORE by Lanford Wilson
10 Men 7 Women
Set in the lobby of a rundown hotel so seedy that is has lost the “e” from its marquee. The play focuses on the decaying, condemned hotel and the upcoming eviction of its residents. Ranging in age from young to old, from defiant to the resigned, these soon-to-be homeless inhabitants meet, talk and interact with each other during the course of one day. This drama/comedy is of the passing events in their lives, of everyday encounters and of the human condition, with conversations often overlapping. The resulting mosaic of each character emerges clearly and is perceptively defined, and the sum total of what they are–or wish they were–becomes a poignant, powerful call to America to recover lost values and to restore itself in its own and the world’s eyes.
