BAREFOOT IN THE PARK features newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter, having completed their six-day honeymoon, moving into their first apartment in Greenwich Village in New York City. Corie is romantic, impulsive, and enthusiastic, while her husband is a proper, careful, even “stuffy” young attorney who is more concerned with his budding legal career than he is with helping build their love nest and perpetuating the honeymoon atmosphere. Soon Corie and Paul quarrel, Paul questioning Corie’s judgment and Corie questioning Paul’s sense of romance and adventure. Even in his first play, acclaimed playwright and humorist Neil Simon had mastered the qualities that would make him enormously successful. First and foremost, BAREFOOT IN THE PARK is clever and hilarious, filled with snappy dialogue and witty one-liners.
