Palliser Suite

by Caroline Russel-King

Palliser Suite is a trilogy of award-winning one-act plays set in Calgary’s famous Palliser Hotel and written in homage to Neil Simon. Playwright Caroline Russell-King received rave reviews and critical acclaim for her work.

In the first play, Mr. Fix It, Mel wakes up at the Palliser Hotel to find his ex-wife bearing the news that she wants to marry her boyfriend, but there’s a problem: her  divorce from Mel never went through. Will Mel win her back?

In the second play, Second Chance, First Love, a 60-something socialite, Zelda, hosts Stanley Stillman, her old boyfriend. Will the old flame re-spark?

The final play is Funeral Fore! Two rival brothers prepare for their father’s wake and the spreading of his ashes on a golf course. Miscommunication, sibling rivalry, obsessive compulsive cleaning, laughter and tears ensue.
