In the not-so-sunny side of California, Alix bounces between motel rooms, taking care of her brothers for her mostly MIA mother. Her classmate Mason is a budding songwriter trying to keep off the radar of his absent father in Hong Kong. Together, they must learn to scrape by without giving up their dreams. This New York Premiere is a surprising tale of kids raising themselves and making something out of nothing in the land of plenty.
Nomad Hotel will feature scenic design by Yu-Hsuan Chen, costume design by Loren Shaw, lighting design by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew, sound design and original compositions by Emily Gardner Xu Hall, fight direction by Ryan-James Hatanaka, dialect coaching by Joy Lanceta Coronel, and casting by TBD Casting: Stephanie Yankwitt, CSA; Margaret Dunn.
Nomad Motel was presented as part of Atlantic's 2017 Asian American MixFest, a festival of new plays exploring and celebrating the wealth of diverse stories in the American theater, and bringing these artists into the Atlantic family.
Nomad Motel was first produced as a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere by City Theatre Company (Pennsylvania), Horizon Theatre Company (Georgia), and Unicorn Theatre (Missouri). For more information please visit nnpn.org.
Nomad Motel was developed during a residency at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference in 2015. Preston Whiteway, Executive Director; Wendy C. Goldberg, Artistic Director.
