Set in a London hotel, this comic, murder-suspense thriller turns the world upside down as the doors between adjoining hotel rooms sends the actors back and forth in time in an attempt to rewrite their history. Says the playwright, “It’s a mix of Psycho and Back to the Future in the Hitchcock vein—but it’s funny.”

This coming of age comedy-drama depicts the backyard world of childhood, with its bullies and victims, leaders and outsiders, brats and tattle-tales, friendships and sibling interchanges, and of course, the games. As the children play, we watch as they suffer the indignities of name-calling, learning responsibility, and trying to fit in.
