Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer, and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick.

After a six day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring, and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous, running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…

Historian’s Corner

The third production of the season was a revival of Neil Simon’s “Barefoot in the Park.” The first production had been during the 1969-1970 season. The show was well-received and praised for the acting. The show made a nice profit for the theater.
