Heart Break Hotel is a passionate play that dives headlong into exploring the relationship between two friends facing the inevitability of their last twenty-four hours together.
Set over 24 hours, two friends check into a palatial end of life hotel. Martin, who has cancer, wants to control the exact timing of his death by accelerating it. Tyrone, his lifelong friend, must learn to let go by ignoring his instincts to intervene and prolong the life of his friend. In this fast moving, humorous, surreal play, the friends banter, reminisce, provoke and fight each other, as their worlds unexpectedly collide and collapse in ways that asks us to consider the truth of our contemporary experiences of life, death, friendship and immortality.
