(Westfield, NJ) Westfield Community Players continues its 2015-16 season with its second production, HOT L BALTIMORE, the funny and sad drama by Lanford Wilson. It is being directed by Beatriz Esteban-Messina and produced by Lucille Bills

Hot L Baltimore was the winner of the New York Drama Circle Award, the Obie Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award.

The play takes place in the lobby of a rundown hotel so seedy that it has lost the “e” from its marquee. As the action unfolds, the residents, ranging from young to old, from the defiant to the resigned, meet and talk and interact with each other during the course of one day. The drama is of passing events in their lives, of everyday encounters and of the human comedy, with conversations often overlapping into a contrapuntal musical flow. In the resulting mosaic each character emerges clearly and perceptively defined, and the sum total of what they “are or wish they were” becomes a poignant, powerful call to America to recover lost values and to restore itself in its own and the world’s eyes.
