A young girl's suicide in an English industrial city brings a detective to the doorway of a British family, allegedly on a routine inquiry in connection with the death. But plot twists and surprises will keep you guessing during this haunting thriller about the respectable Birling family, whose secrets and sins are exposed when the mysterious Inspector Goole interrupts their lives. This popular drawing-room mystery by J.B. Priestley is a fascinating look into the world of a wealthy person as he or she is faced with guilt or blame for a moral wrong. A Broadway revival of An Inspector Calls won the 1994 Tony Award for Best Revival. Learn More

The show was just an “ok” in the beginning, but got better after the intermission. There are three unrelated episodes – the last one was really good. The audience though was very annoying - one couple laughed so disrespectfully loud and deviant... I believe they must have been some friends or relatives of one of the actors... Very disturbing! I think the theater workers should have told them something during the intermission… Overall, if you are Neil Simon’s fan – go and see this play.
Eclipse Theatre Company presents Neil Simon’s rip-roaring comedy Plaza Suite, a portrait of three couples successively occupying the same suite at New York City's famed Plaza Hotel. In the first play, a suburban couple takes the suite while their home is being painted. The second play recounts the meeting of two childhood sweethearts. In the last vignette, a mother and father cope with their daughter's wedding-day jitters.

About the Ticket Supplier: Eclipse Theatre Company
Eclipse Theatre Company chooses one playwright per season and focuses on the works of that playwright only. Through this total immersion in a specific playwright's world, the ensemble gains a thorough understanding of that playwright and the circumstances of his/her writing in order to bring a more concentrated and literate representation of that playwright to the audience.
Playwrights who have written more than three plays are eligible for consideration, as well as playwrights who have shown a definite range of growth throughout their careers. On deciding which plays to perform, a great factor is the challenge that the piece presents to the ensemble and its audience.
Since the inception of the one playwright-one season mission in 1997, playwrights that have been featured with Eclipse include French Playwright Jean Cocteau; Legendary American Playwrights Tennessee Williams, Lillian Hellman and Neil Simon, New York Playwrights Romulus Linney and John Guare, and Chicago native Keith Reddin.
