Directed by David Parry
Neil Simon’s rich comedy of four separate stories that take place in the same hotel suite at different times of the year.
A writer holds a gun on his agent, who, he believes, has embezzled all the money from his book sales. A middle-aged New York widow on a shoe-buying expedition in London with her daughter, meets a rich Scotsman and wonders if she’s ready for a change in lifestyle. An Oscar-winning actress and her former husband, now divorced and are seeing each other for the first time in years. He needs money for his lover who is dying of cancer. This bitter-sweet story has a twist in the tale. Finally, a couple’s vacation plans are disrupted when they lose their Wimbledon tickets and possibly their hotel room to a Hollywood star.
