Classic 70s Decor For The Set Of The Wayside Motor Inn

The Wayside Motor Inn at Signature Theater Company

Ever stop to wonder about the lives of people who stay at roadside inns? What brought them there? Where are they going? In The Wayside Motor Inn by A. R. Gurney, the walls fall away and the audience gets a peek into the on goings of people's lives in those hotel rooms. The characters inhabit the same space, but are unaware of each other as the plot unfolds. Originally produced Off-Broadway at the Manhattan Theatre Club in 1977, Lila Neugebauer directs this revival at the Signature Theatre Company.

Set in a generic motel on the outskirts of Boston in the 1970s, the production features Andrew Lieberman's terrifically accurate set, right down to the "plaid wallpaper, worn chenille bedspreads, and mass-produced fake Colonial furniture," according to The New York Times.

The production also features the design talents of Tyler Micoleau for lighting, Stowe Nelson for sound, and Kaye Voyce for costumes. 

The play's dates have been extended through October 5.
