Neil Simon’s comedy comes to Southlake with the first production in our amended 2019 season.
Andy and Norman are two earnest young men using their apartment as a publishing office for a “protest” magazine in 1960s San Francisco. Sophie, an Olympic swimmer and all-American girl, moves into another apartment on the same floor. Her friendliness and charm leave Norman hopelessly smitten. Thereafter love, with him, is a determined madness, with the humor of it heightened by her frantic rejection of him. Meanwhile, his partner is fielding telephone calls from the irate printer who wants to collect the money due him, and distracting the landlady from thoughts of back rent with motorcycle rides and surfing expeditions. And while she is convinced they are editing a dangerously subversive magazine, our heroine soon finds that her real source of annoyance is that the wrong man is pressing his attentions on her. Happily this situation is reversed in time, as love and politics blend delightfully in a bubbling series of funny happenings, set forth with the masterly skill and inventiveness that are the hallmarks of Neil Simon.
