Barefoot In the Park by Neil Simon
1967 -The summer of love – comes to Storrington!
After spending their honeymoon at the up-market Plaza Hotel, Corrie and Paul Bratter begin married life in a tiny 5th floor apartment in New York. Starry-eyed Corrie knows she can make the shabby walk-up into a wonderful home for them. Pragmatic lawyer, Paul is not so sure, especially after he meets their flamboyant, bohemian, neighbour, Victor Velasco. When Corrie’s conservative mother, Ethel, arrives, she eventually manages to climb the stairs, but can she bring herself to embrace a new, exciting life? Two long-suffering workmen complete the cast of Storrington Dramatic Society’s latest production.
Neil Simon’s “Barefoot in the Park” is a sparkling, sophisticated, comedy that belies its fifty years. Director, Sue Goble, promises that audiences will be able to wallow in Sixties nostalgia but still enjoy lots of laughs and snappy dialogue.
