A revolutionary play written and performed by residents currently living, struggling and sometimes even thriving life in Single Room Occupancy Hotels (SRO's) aka Poor People Housing

“Countless poor people die unknown, unremembered in Single Room Occupancy Hotels every year,” said Robert Webber, one of the tenant actors and writers of Hotel Voices- revolutionary production in his scene.
From El Bebug, an irony-filled, menace, confidant, and terror to Supertenant the mythical spirit of all low-income tenants. Hotel Voices features a cast of real life and mythical characters to take us through a hilarious, tragic and lyrical look inside the life and struggle of people living in poor people housing in San Francisco.
The original concept of the play was launched by well-known poet, tenant organizer and childrens’ book author Tony Robles. Tony collaborated with published author, poet and survivor of SRO’s, homelessness and founder of POOR Magazine, Tiny aka Lisa Gray-Garcia. After receiving a grant from The San Francisco Arts Commission and Creative Work Fund This powerful team brought in Allan Manalo from Bindlestiff Theatre to be the resident director and began a formal collaboration with Tenderloin Housing Clinic’s SRO Collaborative.
