A bittersweet comedy starring Italian-American duo Alessandro Gruttadauria and Wanja Sellers.

It tells the story of a mismatched pair of work colleagues who, because they are forced by circumstances to share a hotel room one night, end up learning many surprising things about each other and themselves.

This new version by Mary Jane Figtree, starring Alessandro Gruttadauria and Wanja Sellers (directed by Richard Heap) brings us a poignant, bittersweet comedy about Dino, a lost soul from a small town in Sicily, and Fran, his American boss, both transplanted to the UK. On a work-related trip to Cornwall, they somehow lose the car keys at a Little Chef on the A30 and are forced to spend a night together in the last available room of the sleazy “Pasty Motel” where the sounds of love-making in the adjacent rooms “comes” in stereo, making every conversation a challenge.

Through the course of a long and embarrassing night, Dino and Fran learn many things about each other and mostly, about themselves
