Barefoot in the Park

Barefoot in the Park by Neil Simon
9 – 24 October

 

Barefoot In The Park is a romantic comedy by Neil Simon. The play premiered on Broadway in 1963, starring Robert Redford and Elizabeth Ashley.

 

The story focuses on a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walkup apartment in a Manhattan brownstone.

 

Paul is a strait-laced attorney, while Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit.

 

As the young couple contend with a lack of heating, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbour Victor Velasco, and Corie’s well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life’s challenges.

 

Adjusting to married life isn’t so easy!

 

The wonderful playwright, Neil Simon, died last year, and this will be a tribute to his mastery.
