Life Without Me

Written by DANIEL KEENE     

Directed by NATALIE BANACH   

Written by the much-awarded playwright Daniel Keene, this is a funny, honest and heartwarming story that invites us to question life itself, or at least our own. Set in a 2-star hotel lobby, capturing the emotional truth of the almost absurd characters, from the less than competent hotel manager to the slightly obscure guests, Daniel Keene has created a symbolic world of its own. A mix of drifters in search of the concept of happiness, trying to move on whilst simultaneously taking up residence in this unseemly perfect sanctuary for lost souls. This thought-provoking play will leave you inspired to question your place in the world; past, present and future. Somehow you may be left feeling awkwardly familiar. “My life just seems to go on, but ... without me in it”.
