The Renata Road

An anonymous man arrives at the nightmarish Renata Hotel, with no memory of his identity or purpose. Plagued by insomnia, he walks the deserted corridors and common rooms, under constant surveillance from the rules-obsessed Manager; haunted by his wheelchair-bound wife and repeatedly tempted by their impulsive, vicious son and their shy, beautiful daughter, the hotel’s maid.

Gradually, as the reluctant stranger encounters the Renata’s few other guests, each a seeming embodiment of his own darker desires, he discovers that they’re united with the family in a violent, twisted conspiracy, that has the shy, young maid at its heart. Now he must fight the escalating madness of the hotel’s denizens to save the girl, and solve the mystery of the Renata, and with it, the secret of his own identity.

A first-class graduate of both the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art (now known as the Central School of Speech and Drama) and the University of Central Lancashire, Ed maintained a successful, wide and varied acting career before adapting his skills to become a director.

He has been seen around the country in some of the UK's most prestigious theatres and has portrayed some of theatre's most passionate and intense characters, including Shakespeare's Romeo (Romeo & Juliet) and Petruchio (Taming of the Shrew), Christopher Marlowe's Mephistopheles (Dr Faustus) and Ibsen's Karsten Bernick (Pillars of Society).

Ed is also the co-founder of the Theatre Group 'In Yer Space' which makes regular, successful, appearances at festivals around the country, including the Edinburgh Fringe, Buxton, Keswick and The Isle of Man.
