On Sunday May 15th at 2:00 PM the Pearl Company, 16 Steven Street, Hamilton will be remembering Robin with a celebration of his life. Our thoughts and condolences goes out to his family and friends.

Barefoot In The Park

A comedy by Neil Simon
Directed by David Mallis

Classic American comedy of young marriage in the 1960s

An early Neil Simon at his comedic best in this funny, side-splitting story of young people setting out in their married life. Older theatre-goers will remember the story of Corrie and Paul trying to learn how to settle into their walk-up New York brownstone apartment. Younger audiences will discover the high quality of American situation comedies of the 1960s, how great the story-telling and the writing were and continue to amaze us today.
