Rooms to Let

“Make me immortal with a kiss,” begs Dr. Faustus the experimenter, in Marlowe’s timeless classic. Still, a few acts earlier, he has muttered the caveat: “All places shall be hell that are not Heaven.” In Walter Bruno’s new play, similar risks are juggled. Bray, a middle-aged actor & talent agent, is busy arranging the lives of dependents. Unfortunately, one man’s arrangement is another’s disruption, especially when it involves offspring of a rebellious era. Relations that Bray had enjoyed two decades earlier threaten to rebound. This highly poetic work holds the stage for two suspenseful acts. The second half of the book presents After Guillaume, the novella (revised) that inspired this play.
