Another great review of Colt Coeur’s “Zürich”! This play is wonderful and we are excited on how well it is being received by the critics and audiences.
Amelia Roper’s Zürich takes place in a luxury hotel in Switzerland in identical rooms. Watching through a pane of glass, it’s as if we are voyeuristically spying on five sets of inhabitants, who each play a part in the final outcome. Each scene ends with a gun shot, a blackout and the sound of an explosion and we begin to realize this is all happening at once.
We first meet a handsome self-involved banker (Paul Wesley) who refuses to leave the room of the woman (Juliana Canfield) he has just had a drunken one-night stand with. He believes this room is his and she just wants him to leave. He seems to have misplaced a lot of things including his luggage. Mr. Wesley’s hysterical portrayal makes this scene hum, and Ms. Canfield is his perfect match.
