Next at The Company ‘California Suite’


The world is a sad, scary place these days. We're going back to basics with a classic comedy for all!

The Oscar Nominated, Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award, and Mark Twain Prize Winning Writer

Directed By Lou Scarpati

Sept 8 to 17, 2017

A humorous confection divided into four parts:

In Visitor from New York, Hannah, a magazine writer, is joined by her ex-husband, the question being with whom should their daughter spend the next six months? The banter flies fast and furious, but Hannah's well-wrought artifice crumbles as her fears take hold.

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 Academy Award nominee Diana returns from the ceremony empty-handed to her 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.

Neil Simon at his most humane, compassionate best.


"For those of us who imagine Los Angeles as nothing but a long street in a desperate search of a parking lot, Neil Simon's California Suite [...] will come as a vast relief [...] Mr. Simon is writing at his ebullient best [...] his language has the grace of conversation we wish our friends could muster [...] makes us laugh so effortlessly." – The New York Times

"The incisiveness of his wit is driven by an insight into everyday humans and the cultures from which their habits are derived." – Chicago Theatre Beat
