  • Barefoot in the Park

WIMBORNE DRAMA PRODUCTIONS Present Neil Simon’s BAREFOOT IN THE PARK.

This romantic comedy set in 1960s New York. Corie and Paul are newly-weds who have just moved into a tiny, 5th-floor apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie is free-spirited and impulsive. The young couple have to contend with bad plumbing, a broken skylight, several long flights of stairs and oddball neighbour Victor Velasco. When Corie tries to set Victor up with her lonely mother she learns, through a series of domestic disasters, that real marriage requires more than being willing to run ‘barefoot in the park’. The play is produced by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD and is directed by Rob Cording-Cook.
Neil Simon, who died in August 2018 aged 91, was arguably America’s most successful and popular playwright, a comic genius whose works captured the zeitgeist of American middle-class life for much of the 20th century. He wrote Barefoot in the Park in 1963. Robert Redford starred in the play on Broadway, and then reprised his role alongside Jane Fonda for the 1967 film. Neil Simon’s countless other hits on stage and screen include The Odd Couple, The Sunshine Boys, The Prisoner of Second Avenue, Laughter on the 23rd Floor, Brighton Beach Memoirs, California Suite, The Goodbye Girl, Sweet Charity and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Lost in Yonkers. He was a four-time Tony winner and had a Broadway theatre named after him.
