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. Edgar Chias is a playwright, actor, theatre critic and translator and was a member of the Royal Court Writers Group in Mexico City. A reading of On Insomnia And Midnight took place as part of Arena Mexico in January 2006. As part of this Anglo-Mexican collaboration, actress Vanessa Bauche (Amores Perros, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada) makes her British debut.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
