Comedy/ 4 Characters, 2 Men, 1 Woman, 1 Either/or/ Full Length, Two Acts
Synopsis: Brandon and Sarah arrive at a seedy motel for a fun afternoon, but guilt, misunderstandings, a meddling motel manager with “issues,” and the fallout from a Bible salesman with ulterior motives get in the way. No Tell Motel is a fast paced relationship comedy with a sexual theme, delicately and tastefully handled. Surprisingly, and against all odds, there’s even a happy ending. Adult situations but no strong language.
