Neil Simon comedy Last of the Red Hot Lovers Hits the Upper Canada Playhouse stage in Morrisburg

A great comedy withstands the test of time and continues to entertain audiences long after it’s written. Legendary playwright Neil Simon’s Last of the Red Hot Lovers is one such comedy. After opening on Broadway in 1969, the comedy has gone on to brighten up stages around the world and makes its latest comic stop in Morrisburg at the Upper Canada Playhouse August 4 to 28.

Inspired by the sexual revolution of the 60’s and the need to spice up his life while there’s still time, Barney Cashman is looking for adventure outside his marriage. He chooses the security of his mother’s New York apartment for an elicit affair and takes great care to plan the event in every detail-including packing a bottle of scotch and glasses in his briefcase to cover up any evidence of the rendezvous. He valiantly attempts three different affairs with three different ladies-all with hilarious and disastrous results. Elaine is too neurotic, Bobbi is too kooky and Jeanette is too gloomy. Also she happens to be married to his best friend. An unforgettable comedy filled with wit and wisdom.
