Hot on the heels of the international success of his film Boy eating the bird’s food, the awarded film-maker and theatre director Ektoras Lygizos stages the Greek premiere of a frenetic farce written in the aftermath of the Wall Street Crash. Down the years, Room Service (1937) has been a theatrical hit on Broadway, a Marx Brothers film, a musical starring Frank Sinatra, and a postmodern production directed by Thomas Ostermeier.

The plot centres on a broke troupe of hungry actors holed up in a run-down hotel who get thoroughly entangled in a web of farcical intrigues to secure backing for their new production.
