“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 Bedbug, 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 the Bay Area.
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.
Following its sold out show in San Francisco, this will be the first staging of Hotel Voices in Oakland.
