Neil Simon's California Suite is a comedy told in four separate playlets. Four different parties 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 3000 miles apart? In "The Visitor From Philadelphia," Marvin awakens with a horrible hangover and a young woman he doesn't know beside him in bed. Moments later, Marvin's wife arrives. Can this 15-year marriage survive whatever it was that Marvin did? In "The Visitors From London," Diana loses the Oscar to another woman and her husband to another man in the same night. This causes some inconvenient truths to intrude on their marriage of convenience. And in "The Visitors From Chicago," four best friends are enjoying a dream vacation together -- until an ultra-competitive tennis match turns them into enemies. Learn More

first time for this play and first time at this theater. I really enjoyed the play immensely...time just flew by because I got so enthralled in the story line.
The theater is wonderful too. You can sense that this community is very closet knit, passionate and eager to share their love with the audience.
It was a lovely play, lovely time, lovely actors and an all together lovely evening.

Sort of like One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest but much lighter. First act was a bit slow; needed to establish the characters and story. Second act was terrific. Play is comic, dramatic and a little thought provoking too. A must see. WCT rocks!
