'Popping up for one night only at the Stables theatre - walk down a lonely street to the Heartbreak Hotel. An exploration of the human heart, and the nooks and crannies of the theatre, the Hotel is a full-on sensory, immersive and transformative happening. Developed by the Griffin Studio in response to the public's submission of objects and tales of woe, the Hotel promises to deliver guests an evening of cathartic entertainment. What find you in the land of heartbreak?
Unburden yourself in the Crazy Break-up Behaviour confession booth, healing apace in a one-on-one counselling session with famed Agony Aunt, Glace Chase. Take a trip down memory lane to schoolyard love in Kate Mulvany's Yes, No, Maybe. For the curious, stimulation physical and emotional in the Sensory Sound Lock (specialising, conversely, in unlocking repressed memories of heartache/break with Macaroons, feathers etc). Enter the Teen Love Crush for a whisper of love unrequited and excruciating rhyming couplets. Ramp up the melodrama in Sands Through the Hour Glass - a contemporary performance duo examining a hotel murder, and the marriage that started it all. Acknowledging, though, that sometimes people should really just Shut Up, and that physical and facial expression really can say it all, some of the Hotel's residents will be exploring the shattering of dreams in movement. Finally, keeping it real, Ian Meadow's will be placing Dummy somewhere so secret in the hotel, even the concierge is ignorant of its whereabouts....'
