Neil Simon at his most humane, compassionate best.

It's a humorous confection divided into four parts: Visitor from New York , Visitor from Philadelphia , Visitors from London and Visitors from Chicago.

In Visitor from New York, Hannah, a magazine writer is joined by her ex-husband, the question being with whom should their daughter spend the next six months? The badinage flies fast and furious but Hannah's well-wrought artifice crumbles as her fears take hold.

The Visitor from Philadelphia is a wife who arrives at the suite, catching her husband "en flagrante delicto" with a drunken hooker.

Visitors from London brings a British star as Academy Award nominee. Diana returns from the ceremony empty-handed to husband Sidney whose homosexuality will be no comfort tonight...

The Visitors from Chicago are two couples ending a disastrous vacation they should not have shared.
