A CLASSIC romantic comedy about two newlyweds learning to live together, despite being polar opposites, comes to Melville Theatre this September.

Written by Neil Simon and directed by Trevor Dhu, Barefoot in the Park follows Paul, an aspiring but conservative lawyer, and his wife Corie, a loving, free-spirited enthusiast for life.

They move from the giddy joy of a honeymoon at New York’s Plaza Hotel into the crazy reality of married life in a tiny fifth-floor Manhattan apartment with no heating system or lift.

Corie wants Paul to become more easy-going, such as being willing to run “barefoot in the park”.

Winner of a Tony Award for best comedy, Simon also adapted his script into a 1967 film starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.

The playwright is also famous for The Odd Couple, Lost in Yonkers, Sweet Charity, The Last of the Red Hot Lovers and Biloxi Blues, among many others.
