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 each another in tow. 

Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance until they are somehow assigned to the same suite.  Mistaken identity, overblown ego, double entendre, and a lap dog name Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of classic farces similar to those enjoyed in 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.
