The Visitor from Philadelphia is a wife who arrives at the suite, catching her husband "en flagrante delicto" with a drunken hooker.
Visitors from London brings a British star as Academy Award nominee. Diana returns from the ceremony empty-handed to husband Sidney whose homosexuality will be no comfort tonight...
The Visitors from Chicago are two couples ending a disastrous vacation they should not have shared.

"The middle aged visitors had last night's middle aged audience laughing heartily." - New York Daily News
