About the Play:

Six plays from George F. Walker, united only by the fact that they each take place in one and the same suburban motel room.

Transients, lovers, the haunted and the hunted, the desperate and the dumb, each "strut and fret their hour upon the stage and then are heard of no more." Real, funny and heartbreaking.

Suburban Motel contains: Problem Child, Criminal Genius, Risk Everything, Adult Entertainment, Featuring Loretta, and The End of Civilization.

Problem Child: R.J. and Denise want their baby daughter back, but with R.J. completely immersed in the Drama of Jerry Springer and Denise being one snide comment away from drastic action, will they be successful? With the aid of Phillie, a drunken motel employee, Denise plots the kidnapping of her daughter from her foster home. The only impediment is Helen, a social worker bent on instilling morality and politeness in a woman too far gone to be changed.
