Thomas Haney secondary’s Sightlines Theatre is presenting Neil Simon’s Tony-award-winning Broadway comedy Plaza Suite.

The three-act play, set in Suite 719 of New York city’s Plaza Hotel, invites the audience into the lives of three separate couples, displaying how the walls would talk if they could.

The first act, Visitor From Mamaroneck, introduces the audience to the couple of Sam and Karen. She has noticed that Sam has not been as attentive to their marriage the past few years so she booked their honeymoon suite in an attempt to bring the love back into their lives.

The second act, Visitor from Hollywood, involves a meeting between movie producer Jesse Kiplinger and his old high school flame, suburban housewife Muriel Tate. A celebrity struck Muriel has come for nothing more than a chat between old friends, a respite from the monotony of everyday life. Jesse, however, has other plans in mind.

The third act, Visitor from Forest Hills, revolves around married couple Roy and Norma Hubley on their daughter Mimsey’s wedding day. In a rush of nervousness, Mimsey has locked herself in the suite’s bathroom and refuses to leave. Her parents’ frantic attempts to coax Mimsey into attending her wedding while the guests wait downstairs is nothing short of hilarious.

• Sightlines Theatre’s rendition of Plaza Suite goes May 13-15,  at 7 p.m. Tickets  are $6 for students and seniors and $8 adults and can be reserved at 604-463-2001.
