Vaclav Havel’s
Mountain Hotel
Identity is a small price to pay for happiness.
In a Chekhovian countryside, Mountain Hotel residents talk about nothing.  A sunbather has a schizophrenic love affair.  He cheats on himself with himself.  A writer commits an unspeakable act at a birthday party.  Even though he did not attend.  The Count chases an ingénue he loved once in Paris.  But she’s never been to Paris.  A young woman pines for her infancy as a rambunctious child of nature with seven siblings…her sheltered youth as the shy, only child of a poor grammar teacher…and her wealthy girlhood as the descendant of a blue-blooded aristocrat.  Rotating hotel directors issue vague pronouncements.  Dialogues repeat.  Roles reverse.  Identities are lost.  The world revolves and devolves into a whirligig of meaningless movement and language.
 
Enjoy your stay at the Hotel.
