The Wayside Motor Inn
Most motel stays during road trips aren't as dramatic as the ones featured in Theatre Southwest's production of A.R. Gurney's The Wayside Motor Inn. The play, set at a motel outside Boston, revolves around five sets of travelers: a rich couple, a lonely salesman, a father and son heading to a Harvard interview, a college-age couple looking to copulate, and a doctor in the process of getting a divorce. The different groups don't interact directly onstage, but the stories still work together to create a whole imbued with humor and pathos. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. September 13. Through September 26. 8944 Clarkcrest. For information, call 713-661-9505 or visit www.theatresouthwest.org. $15.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 13, 3 p.m. Starts: Sept. 4. Continues through Sept. 26, 2009
