This play takes part in a London Suite. You may think of this as a sedate place, but what really is about to unfold?
The play itself is made up of the four following plays:-
- Settling Accounts – The Suite is occupied by an inebriated Welsh writer who is holding his long time business manager, caught absconding with the writer’s money, at gun point. The villain concocts increasingly farfetched explanations of what he was doing at Heathrow with the cash.
- Going Home – An American widow and her daughter arrive in the same Suite. The daughter insists her mother spends her last evening in London with a rich Scotsman. What then happens?
- Diana and Sidney – Here you will witness the lives of two characters from California Suite. Diana, the Oscar-winning actress, and Sidney, her bisexual husband, are now divorced and are seeing each other for the first time in years. He needs money for his lover who (he claims) is dying of cancer. The money is not a problem, but the realization that Diana still loves him is.
- The Man on the Floor – A married couple arrive in the Suite from New York with tickets for Wimbledon, or so they thought. The tickets have been mislaid. A series of events then unfold which will have you rolling around in laughter.
