Coming off the heels of last years wonderful play Plaza Suite, Simply Theatre will continue the trilogy with Neil Simon’s hilarious play California Suite. Look for it in early March at to the Pumphouse Theatre.
A humorous confection divided into four parts:
In Visitor from New York, Hannah, a magazine writer, is joined by her ex-husband, the question being with whom should their daughter spend the next six months? The banter flies fast and furious, but Hannah’s well-wrought artifice crumbles as her fears take hold.
The Visitor from Philadelphia is a wife who arrives at the suite, catching her husband “en flagrante delicto” with a drunken hooker.
Visitors from London Academy Award nominee Diana returns from the ceremony empty-handed to her husband, Sidney, whose homosexuality will be no comfort tonight.
The Visitors from Chicago are two couples ending a disastrous vacation they should not have shared.
Neil Simon at his most humane, compassionate best.
