California Suite

by Neil Simon


A humorous confection divided into four parts: 

Visitors 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. 

Hannah - Nicola Gilbert

William - Frazer Freeman

The Visitor from Philadelphia 

A wife who arrives at the suite, catching her husband "en flagrante delicto" with a drunken hooker. 

Marvin - Simon Gilbert

Millie - Carol Warne

Bunny - Suzie Correya

Visitors from London

Academy Award nominee Diana returns from the ceremony empty-handed to her husband, Sidney, whose homosexuality will be no comfort tonight.

Sidney - Paul Arber

Diana - Tee Greener

The Visitors from Chicago

Two couples ending a disastrous vacation they should not have shared.

Mort - Nick Martin

Beth - Elizabeth Douglass

Stu - Tim Murphy

Gert - Gill Newlyn

Neil Simon at his most humane, compassionate best.
