In a big city hotel room, a man and the maid are talking. But the more they talk, the more danger they face, and neither knows where it will lead. ON INSOMNIA AND MIDNIGHT is a tale to frighten chambermaids in the night.
Edgar Chías is a playwright, actor, theatre critic and translator. He was a member of the Royal Court Writers Group in Mexico City.
Vanessa Bauche’s previous films include AMORES PERROS (appearing opposite Gael Garcia Bernal) and Tommy Lee Jones’ recent film THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA. This is her British stage debut.
This production is co-produced with the Festival Internacional Cervantino in association with the British Council and the Centro Cultural Helénico, with additional support from the Anglo-Mexican Foundation and the Mexican Embassy, London.
After its Royal Court run, ON INSOMNIA AND MIDNIGHT will continue at the Teatro Cervantes, Guanajuato, Mexico on 19, 20 and 21 October 2006. The cast will be the same.
The Royal Court’s work with International Playwrights is supported by the Genesis Foundation.
