Show Description:
Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park is a romantic comedy focusing on newlyweds, as
they begin married life in a tiny fifth floor apartment in New York City. After a six day honeymoon, the couple gets a surprise visit from the mother-in-law and
decide to play matchmaker during a hilarious dinner with their eccentric neighbor in-the-attic. Join DTW for a new take on a comedy classic.
Rated PG

“Neil Simon is my favorite comedy playwright. I so enjoyed directing his “Brighton
Beach Memoirs” and “Rumors” with Desert TheatreWorks. “Barefoot in the Park”
is one I’ve never directed and can’t wait! I’m so excited to be working with Lance
and the entire DTW team on this classic 60’s comedy. The cast is incredible and the
script is hilarious.”
~ Rebecca McWilliams, Director

“From inception, Desert TheatreWorks continues to produce one Neil Simon play a
season. This year’s offering is a classic romantic stage comedy that will bring the
nostalgia of love during the 1960s, and still brings the laughs to this day. The story
and relationships in the play seamlessly translate to present day. There’s truly
something for everyone in this show.”
~ Lance Phillips, Artistic Director
