OVERVIEW

It’s 1942, and two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel – assistants, luggage, and legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance…that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog name Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s. If you have ever enjoyed a quality farce like Noises Off or Lend Me a Tenor, you will definitely enjoy Suite Surrender.
