"The Grand is darkly funny and touches on humanity’s big-ticket items – ambition, belonging and cocktail animals" - Artgaze Magazine, October 2013

The Grand has fallen under hard times. Between moss that grows as you watch, birds that just won’t quit and a lack of actual tourists, the hotel sits empty of guests. Save for one.

The Grand’s proprietor, Matilda, reluctantly take on a new housekeeper, Eugenia, and as the months pass by a game unfolds distorting the line between real life and fantasy.

With a dry humor, this cyclical play explores peoples’ ambition and ones sense of belonging. Matilda and Eugenia struggle through a once grand hotel, in a town in the depths of a tourism deficit, solely dependent on one another.

“Carless has a beautiful turn of phrase and a distinctive theatrical voice, unhurried and mesmerising as she builds the relationship between the two women. Are they half-sisters? Is this an elaborate game between them or merely the fantasy of one woman dying slowly in a poisoned world?” Real Time Arts Magazine, March 2013.
