Written by Neil Simon, America's premier comic playwright, London Suite was first produced on Broadway in 1995. 

 

It is a collection of four short plays set in Room 402 ,a  suite of a fashionable old hotel in London. In each story, at various times, Simon sets a different tone, including a thriller, a comedy, a comedy-drama, and a farce.

 

What ensues includes a conflict between a writer and his financial manager, a daughter trying to couple her widowed mother with an eccentric gentleman, a poignant catch up many years later of a divorced couple,  and two frantic American tourists who have lost their Wimbledon tickets and are about to lose their suite to Hollywood actor Kevin Costner.
