Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring, and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous. Running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…


“Really a charming play, an emotional rollercoaster for those that have experienced similar occurrences in their lives. This is on the table to be produced this fall with my students. Smart actors and good timing are a must for this, but the hard work is worth it for the overall impact of the play.”

“Still one of the best plays ever written”

“Wonderful comedy”

“One of Neil Simon’s best!”

“Brilliant show for a talented leading lady and man!”
