Suite Surrender presented
Inspire Theater will be presenting Suite Surrender: a farce by Michael McKeever at 7:30 p.m. 17, 18, 24 and 25, and at 3 p.m. Jan. 19 and 26 at Westland Center for the Arts, located at 33455 Warren Road.
The story takes place in 1942 and two of Hollywood's biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel -- assistants, luggage, and legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance until they are somehow assigned to the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s. The play is not suitable for all ages.  For tickets and more information visit
