Dredgewater Daze tells the story of the fictional Dresden Hotel, a rooming house that has seen better days. As the play opens residents face eviction as rumours circulate about the house getting shut down. Colourful characters and twists abound as the plot unfolds. There’s the mystery of the hidden stash, romance and even a wedding!

The radio play project was coordinated by Roomers and funded by the City of Yarra through their Community Grants.
