The play

Das Schlimmste Hotel 

Herr und Frau Schröder have not had a guest at their hotel for months.  So they were excited when a man arrives wanting a room for a night.

Their excitement is short lived when they read in a newspaper of an escaped criminal fitting the description of their new guest.

They try to act normal while they await the arrival of the police.  But their fears get the better of them as they try to protect themselves.  

Then, another guest arrives.

Then another one!

But who is who?

This is a fast-paced play performed by just 2 actors playing all the characters.


It is a crazy, funny and extremely entertaining piece of theatre.
