Neil Simon has been called the "world's most successful playwright," and he has the Academy Award and Tony nominations to back it up. Whether dramatic or comedic, Simon's writing strikes a chord with people everywhere.

To the delight of its audience, Tacoma Little Theatre is currently running Simon's California Suite.  

Set in California, in Suite 203/204, the play is really composed of four playlets. Just like life, the action and dialogue encompasses a range of human emotion. For example, in Act 1, Scene 1, Hannah (Kathi Aleman), a visitor from New York, arrives to talk to her ex-husband, Billy (Paul Duke), about their daughter. While there are a few laughs, this is one of the two dramatic scenes of the show.
