This is the first play of our “Season of Simon” celebrating the 90th birthday of Neil Simon which is on July 4, 2017. It is the story of Jake, a novelist, who is more successful with fiction than with life. He faces a crisis through conversations – some imaginary and some real — with the women in his life. They include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is planning to leave Jake, and Jake’s current lady friend.
The Cast: Bryan Kirsch as Jake, Karen Davis as Julie, Robin Kirsch as Maggie, Stina Seeger-Gibson as Karen, Joy Gallagher as Edith, Dahlia Merry as Molly (12), Brandie Jurasin as Molly (21) and Roseanne Johnson as Sheila.
