Neil Simon's California Suite is really four separate comedy playlets with one common thread. In each, people from various cities travel to California during different time periods and stay in the same Beverly Hills Hotel suite, bringing their problems, anxieties and comic marital dilemmas with them. In "The Visitor From New York," Hannah loves living in New York, while her ex-husband, Billy, loves L.A. Can two happily divorced parents raise their only daughter while living 3,000 miles apart? "The Visitor From Philadelphia" finds Marvin waking up with a horrible hangover -- and a young woman he doesn't know beside him in bed, soon followed by the arrival of his wife. In "The Visitors From London," when actress Diana loses the Oscar to another woman and her husband to another man on the same night, some inconvenient truths intrude on their marriage of convenience. And four best friends are enjoying a dream vacation together in "The Visitors From Chicago" -- until an ultra-competitive tennis match turns them into bitter enemies. In a unique twist, Onyx Theatre presents the show with a different director for each vignette. Learn More
