Melmoth presents the UK premiere of Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt's Between Worlds.

Welcome to the Between Worlds Hotel!

Colin, thirty something, too afraid to commit to anything or anyone because the only future he can see is his inevitable end. He is intent on drowning his career at the bottom of a whisky bottle and driving hard and fast on the highway of self-destructive hedonism. How long before he crashes and destroys everything?

Less than an hour ago Colin drove his car into a tree. He finds himself in a hotel between worlds, where a series of bizarre companions take him on a journey of self-discovery: The Magus, fortune teller extraordinaire; Jessie a bawdy cleaner; The Chairman of some board or other; the mysterious Dr S and Laura.

What does Colin really discover about life and love during his stay Between Worlds and will he ever get a second chance?

Both absurdly funny and profoundly moving, Between Worlds is Melmoth's third UK premiere this year, following the sell-out 'To WH' and the critically acclaimed 'Stay With Me' at Greenwich Playhouse.
