About the Show Less...

On Insomnia And Midnight is a tale to frighten chambermaids in the night. Read More >

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.
