HENRY Lawson Theatre's next production promises audience a real treat.

Neil Simon's Plaza Suite features some of the company's finest actors, said director Leanne Caton.

The three-act play is set in the Plaza Hotel, New York, in 1968. Each act portrays the story of a different visitor to the suite.

"Hilarity abounds as we meet the three couples who successively occupy the suite," Ms Caton said.

In the first act, a middle-aged suburban couple try to rekindle their relationship. It turns out they stayed in the suite on their honeymoon 23 (or was it 24) years before and was yesterday the anniversary or is it today?

The next story follows the exploits of a Hollywood producer who is looking for fresh fields after three marriages. He calls a childhood sweetheart — now a suburban housewife — for a little sexual diversion but things don't go to plan.

The last act is a hilarious piece in which mother and father fight about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom . . . and down to her wedding.

Showtimes: June 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28 and July 4 at 8pm, with matinees on Sunday, June 22 and 29 at 2pm.
