|California Suite first presents at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre, New York, is one of Neil Simon's succession of Broadway Hits.
In Visitor from New York, Hannah, a bright, feisty, successful and ambitious magazine writer meets her ex-husband, Bill, after nine years. Their daughter, Jenny, has run away from New York to stay with her father (who had fled to California for a quiet, less frenetic life). Words fly like spears!
In Visitor from Philadelphia loyal husband and ultra-convetional businessman, Marvin, awakes with a colossal hangover to find a voloptuous, unconcious blond in his hotel bed. She is clad only in Marvin's pyjama top! With his wife, Millie, on her way up to the suite, Marvin is in serious trouble unless he can find a way to conceal all evidence of his uncharacteristic indescretion.
Visitors from Chicago Mort & Beth, Stu & Gert seem to have nothing in common and are the most unlikley of friends to be taking 'the holiday vacation of a lifetime'. Things deteriorate rappidly, though, when Beth is injured during a tennis match!
All three plays are set in the smae luxury hotel suite, at different times of the year in late 1970's.
