La Concierge Solitaire
"Monteyne goes through a gamut of emotions, at times exhilarated, scared, conniving, menacing, shy, inept, but thoroughly enchanting throughout."
~The New Orleans Examiner~

A concierge is alone in the lobby of a hotel that has closed its doors. As she struggles between leaving and staying, she begins to create the people who should grace the empty grand foyer. Look through the keyhole and witness what emerges from the imagination of a person whose job is to be able to do anything and who now has no one to do it for.

Co-authors Matthew Morris and Andrew Farrier conceived this comedic drama while Matthew worked as a desk clerk in a largely uninhabited housing development. With the aid of actress Cecile Monteyne, stage manager Matt Standley, dramaturg Helen Jaksch, and producer/production manager/production designer James Lanius, an early draft of the piece premiered at the 2011 New Orleans Fringe Festival.

"Darting from one corner of the stage to another, switching accents on a dime, or simply throwing on a white glove, she seamlessly switched from one character to the next. Embodying one character at a time, she never let us forget the presence of the others. . . they held three-way conversations while all gripping onto a fox stole, or struggled in a group to get a hold of a suitcase rumored to contain live scorpions. All as the concierge sat behind her desk, looking on."
~NOLA Defender~
