1967 -The summer of love – comes to Storrington!
After spending their honeymoon at the up-market Plaza Hotel, Corrie and Paul Bratter begin married life in a tiny 5th floor apartment in New York. Starry-eyed Corrie (Maddy Gilmore) knows she can make the shabby walk-up into a wonderful home for them. Pragmatic lawyer, Paul (Sam Standen) is not so sure, especially after he meets their flamboyant, bohemian, upstairs neighbour, Victor Velasco (Ian Stuart). When Corrie’s conservative mother, Ethel (Susan Nicel), arrives, she eventually manages to climb the stairs, but can she bring herself to embrace a new, exciting life? As two long-suffering workmen, Martin Carter and David Chinn complete the cast of Storrington Dramatic Society’s latest production.
Neil Simon’s “Barefoot in the Park” is a sparkling, sophisticated, comedy that belies its fifty years. Director, Sue Goble, promises that audiences will be able to wallow in Sixties nostalgia but still enjoy lots of laughs and snappy dialogue.
Tickets for the show, priced at £9, will be available for purchase from mid May at the usual outlets (Fowlers Estate Agents in the Square, Storrington and Nisa Local in Haglands Lane, West Chiltington), or by clicking the link below. Performances are at 7.45pm from Thursday 15 to Saturday 17 June, at Sullington Parish Hall in Thakeham Road.
