About the play:
Neil Simon at his most humane, compassionate best. It's a humorous confection divided into four parts: Visitor from New York; Visitor from Pennsylvania; Visitors from London and Visitors from Chicago.
In Visitor from New York, Hannah (Robin Walbeck-Forrest), a magazine writer is joined by her ex-husband (René Schuchter), the question being with whom should their daughter spend the next six months? The badinage flies fast and furious but Hannah's well-wrought artifice crumbles as her fears take hold.
The Visitor from Philadelphia is a wife (Kelsey Jacobs) who arrives at the suite, catching her husband (Greg Lucas) "en flagrante delicto" with a drunken hooker (Sharon Wiltshire/Leslayann Schecterson).
Visitors from London brings a British star as Academy Award nominee. Diana (Robin Walbeck-Forrest) returns from the ceremony empty-handed to husband Sidney (René Schuchter) whose homosexuality will be no comfort tonight.
The Visitors from Chicago are two couples (Bill Stone/Leslayann Schecterson and Ed Benson/Kelsey Jacobs) enduring a disastrous vacation they should not have shared.
"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
