University of Alaska Anchorage - UAA Mainstage Theatre
Poignant moments of enormous compassion shine in the midst of a cheap Mexican resort hotel during an Equinoxial storm. The desolation and emptiness are in the characters: the tough, sex-starved widow who runs the hotel; the neurotic, defrocked minister, and the gentle maiden lady from New England. Thrown together in this squalid setting their human needs become explicit, and from their conflicts comes the realization that life must be endured, and that the spirit will somehow survive even beyond the limits of anguish.
