Publisher's Summary

Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza Hotel. A suburban couple takes a suite while their house is being painted, a Hollywood producer calls a childhood sweetheart for a little sexual diversion, and a mother and father fight about the best way to get their daughter, the bride, out of the bathroom and back to the wedding.

What the Critics Say

"Another winner." (The London Standard)
"All three are remorselessly anti-romantic love stories: outrageously funny, wincingly cruel." (The London Times)

Most Helpful

Neil Simon's wonderful play of comedy and pathos.

Three short episodes linked by room 719 in the New York Plaza Hotel. In the first there is Sam Nash, a man longing for his energetic youth and Karen a wife, who wants partnership, respect, and love as they grow older together. In the second Jesse Kiplinger, the archetypal Hollywood mogul is longing for an authentic experience, but finding image-obsessed Muriel, who is happier with fantasy. Finally, in the funniest of the 3 plays, there is Roy Hubley, the father listing the staggering cost of the wedding that could crumble around him and the mother Norma, in constant and immediate fear of disaster but somehow enduring with more strength than she would admit.
