Playwright Neil Simon’s "California Suite" is a comedy consisting of four playlets whose action takes place in rooms 203 and 204 of the Beverly Hills Hotel in 1976. This is Neil Simon at his best - a humorous confection.

In the Visitor from Philadelphia, Marvin Michaels finds himself in a very difficult position when his wife comes to meet him in the suite.
In the Visitors from London, Sidney and Diana Nichols are a couple from London who have rented the suite to attend the Academy Awards. The Visitors from Chicago are two affluent couples who are best friends and have come to Beverly Hills for a vacation, which takes a turn for the worst after a mixed doubles tennis match.
