MADC is this weekend presenting Neil Simon’s California Suite, a witty show that deals with the themes of marriage, regret, infidelity and the pitfalls of fame, among others. These are presented in four comedic shorts that all play out in a luxury hotel suite.

Each short has its own storyline. In Visitor from New York, a divorced couple argue over custody of their daughter, while in Visitor from Philadelphia, a man wakes up to a comatose prostitute and his wife about to arrive.

Next up, in Visitors from London, an actress frets over her Oscar nomination and her doomed marriage, while, in Visitors from Chica­go, two couples end a disastrous vacation that they really should not have shared to begin with.

The plays, each 30 minutes long, are directed by Justin Kyle Camilleri and Joe Depasquale.

The cast includes Stefan Cachia Zammit, Maria Pia Meli, Taryn Mamo Cefai, Edward Caruana Galizia, Jovan Pisani and Christine Borg.

California Suite is being staged from today to Sunday at the MADC Playhouse, Santa Venera, at 7.30pm. It is suitable for audiences aged 14+. For tickets, log on to
