California Suite

By Neil Simon
Directed by Mathew Firmin

Presented through a special arrangement with Samuel French, New York, NY

It’s a humorous Neil Simon confection that examines the lives of people with varied back grounds and from different locales that all visit the same hotel suite in swanky Beverly Hills. First is Hannah, a New York magazine writer, and her ex-husband, who are trying to decide where their daughter is going to spend her next six months. The banter flies fast and furious but Hannah’s well-wrought artifice crumbles as her fears take hold.  Next is Marvin, a conservative middle-aged businessman from Philadelphia that awakens to find himself in bed with unconscious prostitute named Bunny.  With his wife on the way up to the room, he scrambles to find a way to hide his uncharacteristic indiscretion. Guest number three is British star and Academy Award nominee, Diana, who returns from the ceremony empty-handed to her husband Sidney, whose pursuit of an alternate lifestyle provides no solace for his wife’s disappointment.  And last are two couples from Chicago that are at the tail-end of a disastrous vacation they should not have shared.  Filled with the wit that is Neil Simon’s hallmark, you’ll find your visit to this hotel very funny indeed!
