RAW Presents Reservations – by Joe Barison, Directed by Michael R. Cohen – January 27 – February 12, 2023
The play is about pursuing a dream versus conforming to society. A New York City hotel has mistakenly reserved the same room for two complete strangers – a man and a woman. With no vacancies at the hotel or apparently anywhere else in town, the two travelers agree to share the room for the night. As the two guests get to know each other, they learn that each is living the life that the other dreams of. Just as they start to connect in important ways, people in their lives unexpectedly arrive. Mix in the hotel’s young bellhop who’s doing her film school documentary, an art patron who will go to any length to buy a painting, and a hotel manager who wants to get through just one week without a crisis, and it gets hard to keep track of who’s checking in and who’s checking out.
