Pera Palas



By Sinan Unel
Directed by Michael Michetti

Guests at the palatial Pera Palas hotel in Istanbul strive to keep up with the changing world around them as interconnected stories crisscross through three tumultuous periods in 20th century Turkey. An incisive, humorous, moving story, with 10 actors playing 27 roles — Turks, Brits, and Americans — in a story straddling Asia and Europe, Islam and Christianity, tradition and modernity.
