Interior Set

America's premier comic playwright crosses the Atlantic for a suite of hilarious comedies set in a deluxe London hotel a sedate place until these characters check in. In 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 villian concocts increasingly farfetched explanations of what he was doing at Heathrow with the cash.

An American widow and her daughter, in England to buy shoes, take over the suite in Going Home. At the daughter's insistence, mother spends her last evening in London with a rich Scotsman.

The hotel guests in The Man on the Floor are a married couple from New York who have lost their tickets to Wimbledon and are about to lose their suite to Kevin Costner who absolutely must have it now.

The evening ends on a funny, bittersweet note with Diana and Sidney, another chapter in 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 is dying of cancer. The money is not a problem for Diana, but the realization that she still loves him is.

I love the concept of the playlets, which are part of Plaza Suite, California Suite, and now London Suite. It gives actors a taste of Summer Stock. While the first two are products of the Sexual Revolution, London Suite moves beyond that. All three plays are about relationships and what is nice about London Suite is that the playlets are all very beyond, but in their own way touching. Most people adore the Sidney and Diane sketch and it's understandable way, but for me the best part is that all four are very different, but all touching in their own way. Not one of his classics, but fun to stage and see.
