Italian-American actors Alessandro Gruttadauria and Wanja Sellers bring new comedy two-hander Lost Keys and Orgasms at the Pasty Motel to London’s Canal Café Theatre for five performances only during Camden Fringe, running 14 to 18 August 2019. Sneak a peek at the duo and director Richard Heap in rehearsals – and then get booking!
Lost Keys and Orgasms at the Pasty Motel is a poignant, bittersweet comedy about Dino, a lost soul in London from a small town in Sicily, and Fran, his neurotic American boss.
On a work-related trip to Cornwall, they 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 makes conversation a challenge, yet through the course of a long and embarrassing night, Dino and Fran learn many things about each other and (most of all) about themselves.
Lost Keys and Orgasms at the Pasty Motel, presented by Goldcave and Figtree Productions, is based loosely on the concept originated in the 1999 comedy by Fiona Bettanini and Diego Ruiz entitled Pride and Orgasms.
This new romantic two-hander is one of a number of productions running at the Canal Café Theatre in London’s Little Venice during the 14th annual Camden Fringe including Notch, Surfing the Holyland, Yavor Gigov’s Barefoot, City Impro’s Laugh Island, Anthony Jeannot’s I Want to Buy a House, Creative Curve Theatre Company’s Brandy, Ted Hill’s All the President’s Men, Oop-La! Theatre’s Encore, Encore!, The Halls of Ridiculous Comedy Panel Show and The Discount Comedy Checkout.
#LostKeysAndOrgasms is a play about two colleges who lose the company car’s keys and discover a whole lot more than they expected,whilst trying to find them! @CanalCafe @richardtheap @CamdenFringe #CamdenFringe #featured pic.twitter.com/z1Mq11w4Ud
