The Group Rep presents MOTEL 66, eight brand new one-act plays set in different cities along Route 66 running September 21 through October 22.
Why Route 66? What relevance does an old highway going from Chicago to Santa Monica bring to light? Route 66 starts in the heart of the country and goes west like the path of the dreamer where you run into all types of people and all kinds of stories as humans take to the highway; sometimes in search of something; sometimes transitioning; sometimes reflecting.
