A romantic comedy about love, life and living together. Springtime in New York City. Fresh from a blissful, six-night honeymoon stay at The Plaza, newlyweds Paul and Corrie move into their top floor Manhattan apartment. Paul’s a straitlaced, ambitious attorney focused on climbing the corporate ladder; Corrie’s a passionate, free spirit, always looking on the bright side of life. Their small flat is her latest find and she’s determined to create a romantic home, despite bare walls, bad plumbing, eccentric neighbours and a hole in their skylight. It’s not long until Corrie’s mother arrives to cast her eye over their expensive apartment, and when she meets the eccentric neighbour-in-the-attic, things begin to unravel. If only Corrie could be more pragmatic and see things as Paul does. If only stick-in-the-mud Paul could be a little more spontaneous ... Running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…
Author of The Odd Couple, Pulitzer prize winning playwright Neil Simon is one of America’s best loved writers. Barefoot in the Park is one of his greatest works.
