Good Luck Hotel

LONELY RADIO DJ BOBBY IS OBSESSED WITH THE FEAR OF DEATH. FROM HIS BASEMENT RADIO STATION, HE JOURNEYS THROUGH PARALLEL UNIVERSES IN SEARCH OF THOSE HE HAS LOVED AND LOST. BECAUSE WHAT CAN’T HAPPEN IN THIS REALITY CAN HAPPEN IN ANOTHER...

Time follows its course. And in the middle of it all, for one brief moment, we’re here. Frightened. Counting the days, and the hours, and the seconds. Knowing that everything, at some point, is going to end. I often think about last goodbyes. The last moments together. The last hugs. The last looks. The last seconds. And it makes me believe that, in the end, death is nothing but an illusion of our own making. Like time and space. I'll stub out my cigarette, go to sleep, walk through the passage again, and they'll be there. All of them. We'll stand in front of the calm sea, in front of the Good Luck Hotel. We’ll feel a light breeze on our faces and everything will be all right again. You're listening to Parallel Radio, Radio 590, it’s 12:56. My name is Bobby. Bobby Good Luck. And this is my last programme.

Audience: adult, children 12+
