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.
BAREFOOT IN THE PARK 1- 4 December 2021, Buscot Park Theatre Lechlade Rd, nr Faringdon, SN7 8BU With kind support from Lord Faringdon

I wanted to write to let you know how much our group of 4 enjoyed your production on Saturday. Very funny and well acted. How the cast could perform so well on a “small” stage is testament to their talent. Thanks for a really entertaining evening. TF, email
