ANNIVERSARIES – TWO ACT COMEDY ABOUT A FAILING HOTEL
Diane Culthorpe, the reputable and ‘motherly’ proprietor of a clifftop hotel in Italy is about to celebrate her thirtieth anniversary as the owner of the hotel. Sadly, she has been far from financially astute and the bank is about to foreclose on the mortgage.
Alan Barron, a novelist and author of the trilogy, Anniversaries, has been a guest at the hotel for twenty five years and might also be celebrating his twenty fifth wedding anniversary, had his wife not left him during the first week of their honeymoon.
Reg Moss and his colleague Elaine, property investment executives, arrive at the hotel with an ulterior motive – to ascertain whether it would be in their employer’s interests to purchase the hotel to develop it as a casino.
