London Suite

In accordance with the current mandate from the Nantucket Board of Health, masks must be worn at all indoor performances. Thank you for your cooperation. Either proof of vaccination, or proof of a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours, for INDOOR performances beginning on September 9 with the first performance of Neil Simon’s London Suite.

America’s premier comic playwright crosses the Atlantic for a suite of hilarious vignettes 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 villain 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.

Diana and Sidney appear in 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.

The play ends on an hysterical note in “The Man on the Floor.” The charachtersare 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.

“Makes laughter easy!”– The New York Times

“You’ll leave this bright comedy with a smile on your face.”– NBCTV

“Booked solid with merciful laughter.”– Newark Star-Ledger

London Suite is approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes including a 10 minute intermission.
