    Barefoot In The Park

    7.30pm (2.30pm Saturday matinee)Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne

    A slice of the Big Apple will be served up at the Tivoli Theatre in February, when Wimborne Drama Productions presents Neil Simon’s romantic comedy Barefoot In The Park.

    Set in 1960s New York, and made famous by Robert Redford and Jane Fonda in the 1967 film version, Barefoot In The Park is about newly-weds Corie and Paul who have just moved into a tiny, 5th-floor apartment in a Manhattan brownstone.

    Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie is free-spirited and impulsive. The young couple have to contend with bad plumbing, a broken skylight, several long flights of stairs and oddball neighbour Victor Velasco. When Corie tries to set Victor up with her lonely mother she learns, through a series of domestic disasters, that real marriage requires more than being willing to run ‘barefoot in the park’.

    The cast is led by Jemma Cable as Corie and David Beddard as Paul, with support from Tracie Billington-Beardsley, Richard Neal, Colin Pile and Simon Jackson. The director is Rob Cording-Cook.

    Barefoot In The Park runs from 20 – 22 February at the Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne: Evenings at 7.30pm, £14; Saturday matinee at 2.30pm, £12. For tickets telephone the Tivoli Box Office on 01202 885566 or book online at
