Busybody:
Mrs. Piper, the voluble office cleaning lady who knows everyone and tends to mind everyone else's business a little too much, discovers a dead body in one of the offices while cleaning late one night - or does she? A team of detectives is deployed from Scotland Yard, led by Superintendent Baxter, who is roused from his sick bed, only to discover that the body has disappeared! Has there really been a death, and, if so, was it murder? Who on the staff would have a motive and can the police get to the bottom of this without the help of the meddlesome busybody?

California Suite:
Neil Simon is at his most humane, compassionate best in this series of four vignettes following the separate stories of guests from New York, Philadelphia, London and Chicago who have checked into the swank Beverly Hills Hotel over the weekend of the Academy Awards gala. The comic and sometimes bittersweet romp through Rooms 203 and 204 is a zany ride into the realm of what makes couples tick.
