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.
BERNARD S. DUNLAP, Male, 40+
The General Manager of the Palm Beach Royale Hotel & Spa who wants everything at this hotel to run smoothly and doesn’t handle it well when it doesn’t.
CLAUDIA MCFADDEN, Female, 40+
Larger than life, America’s beloved Matron of Song moves into every room like an elegantly dressed tornado.
ATHENA SINCLAIR, Female, 40+
A great star of stage and screen, she is beautiful, stylish, and every inch the diva and former screen siren.
MURPHY STEVENS, Female, 20-40
Personal secretary of Athena and former fiancé of bellhop Francis who once wanted to be a big star but settled for being secretary to a big star.
MR. PIPPIT, Male, 30+
Personal secretary of Claudia, pretty much resigned to the fact that his lot in life is to be yelled at. A tiny man compared to his employer.
DORA DEL RIO, Female, 30+
A gossip columnist who can smell a juicy story and will try almost anything to get it.
Actor must be good at physical comedy.
MRS. EVERETT P. OSGOOD, Female, 40+
A society matron & president of the Palm Beach Ladies for Unity
FRANCIS, Male, 18-35 Bellhop
OTIS, Male 18-35 Bellhop
