Comedy

Production Sponsor: Collingwood Tim Hortons

By Neil Simon

From Orillia Opera House

barefootNeil Simon’s widely acclaimed and well-loved movie, Barefoot in the Park, is sure to be a triumph on our stage in 2017! This romantic comedy focuses on a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walk-up apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit. As the young couple contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and Corie’s well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life’s challenges.  Adjusting to married life isn’t so easy but can be VERY funny!
