The Amoralists' Site-Specific HotelMotel to Feature Works Written and Directed by Derek Ahonen, Adam Rapp logo
The Amoralists will present HotelMotel, featuring the New York premiere of Animals and Plants, written and directed by Obie Award-winner Adam Rapp, and the world premiere of Pink Knees on Pale Skin, written and directed by Derek Ahonen. The site-specific theatrical event will play The Gershwin Hotel, August 4-29, with an opening on August 10.

Rapp's play is set on the night of a terrible blizzard, as two drug runners are snowbound in a cheap motel room at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. As they wait for their connection, they are visited by a mysterious young woman who may or may not figure into their future. The cast will include Matthew Pilieci, William Apps, and Katie Broad.

In Ahonen's play, to save their undersexed marriages, The Wyatt and Williams families are meeting with Dr. Sarah, aka The Orgy Counselor. The plan: to participate in an organized orgy held in a discrete hotel room. But on this particular night, Dr. Sarah has designed a self-destructive twist, guaranteed to unleash chaos upon all involved. The cast will feature Sarah Lemp, Jordan Tisdale, James Kautz, Vanessa Vache, Byron Anthony, Anna Stromberg, Sarah Roy and Nick Lawson.

The design team for HotelMotel will include Alfred Schatz (set design), Keith Parham (lighting design), Jessica Pabst (costume design), and Phil Carluzzo (sound design).
