Family reunions don’t get much more strained than this.

After not seeing her family in six years, Caroline finally returns to the skuzzy motel her mom owns in Virden to take her back to the big city. The self-confessed germaphobe instead meets the hard-living caretaker, Lizzy, who drops some bad news on the real estate agent, triggering a chain-reaction of heated verbal exchanges and internal soul-searching. Caroline’s sister Alice soon joins the fray, setting the stage for an off-the-wall climax involving plush raccoons.

The script by Angie St. Mars is both thought-provoking and funny and there is a dynamic chemistry among actors Elizabeth Whitbread, Kimberly Kakegamic and Samantha Walters that never falters over the course of this locally produced 60-minute dramatic comedy. Consider this debt paid in full.

— Rob Williams

From the Fringe program:

Caroline, a self-made germaphobic real-estate tycoon returns home to the family motel looking for her mother's affirmation, but is instead met by a territorial manic-deppressive janitor with an unforeseen secret. Their deepest desires become jeopardized by Alice, a recovered alcoholic, born-again animal whisperer, who holds the key to the Highway Motel.
