Checking in for a hotel performance

The Hotel Plays by American playwright Tennessee Williams is a theatre experience set in the rooms and corridors of The Langham Hotel in London.

Audiences are guided through the hotel to see three separate stories being performed in different parts of the hotel, and get up close to the actors performing just a few feet away.

Williams himself lived for 15 years at the Hotel Elysee in New York and gathered much inspiration for his plays from his time there.

Over the course of the evening the audience will see Green Eyes, Sunburst and The Pink Bedroom.

One of the directors, James Hillier, gave BBC News an exclusive tour behind the scenes.
