Barefoot in the Park

Mon 23rd – Sat 28th Apr 2012


“A bubbling, rib-tickling comedy. ”





Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre


Corrie and Paul are newly-weds who have just moved into their cold eyrie of an apartment. Corrie is starry-eyed, Paul less so after staggering up five flights of stairs to their drafty new home. Their building seems to be populated by unusual characters, the most bohemian being Victor, whom Corrie finds very entertaining. The newly-weds' troubles come to a head when Corrie tries playing Cupid between Victor and her lonely mother and after a disastrous dinner party she learns that walking barefoot in the park may not necessarily denote joie de vivre - in February it is simply silly!

Directed by and starring Olivier Award-winning actress Maureen Lipman (ITV's Ladies of Letters, Educating Rita, The Pianist, Oklahoma) as Corrie's put-upon mother Ethel, Barefoot in the Park is written by one of the world's most popular playwrights, Neil Simon. Neil has had countless successes on stage and screen including; The Odd Couple, The Sunshine Boys, The Prisoner of Second Avenue, Laughter on the 23rd Floor and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Lost in Yonkers. None was more successful than Barefoot in the Park which was one of the longest-running productions on Broadway.
