Anywhere

By Michael Ross Albert

A young businesswoman returns to her AirBnB to find that her host has been waiting up for her. What started as a cordial relationship between strangers begins to steadily escalate into a tense and unnerving battle for control.

In this new thriller, two women face off against each other in a struggle for meaning, connection, and power.

NNNN - "You might think twice about booking your next AirBnB room after watching Michael Ross Albert's thrilling two-hander."

NOW Magazine

"Without a doubt, a must-see of the Fringe."

My Entertainment World

"A poignant, thrilling experience that left me rattled."

Mooney on Theatre

"Superb."

ArtsVox

"Michael Ross Albert knows how to reel you in slowly, then hook you. He is a rare writer that can state his themes directly and still give you more to think about in the subtext."

Ontario Arts Review

"A complex power struggle... gripping, darkly funny... Part mystery, part psychodrama, part class struggle, Anywhere starts at a slow boil; then the heat gets turned up as suspicions, confessions and demands explode..."
