More Information


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.

Directed by Steve Scott

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.
