NECC Theater Group Present Neil Simon Play
The Neil Simon comedy “Last of the Red Hot Lovers” will be presented by the Northern Essex Community College’s Top Notch Players.
The play will run Thursday, February 22; Friday, February 23; Saturday, February 24; and Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3, at 7 p.m. and Thursday, March 1 at 4 p.m. and Sunday, March 4 at 2 p.m. in the recently renovated Chester W. Hawrylciw Theater on the third floor of the Spurk Building on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St.
The play’s protagonist, middle-aged Barney Cashman who married his high school sweetheart wants to have one sweeping extra-marital romantic fling in his tranquil, faithful, marriage before life passes him by. On three different afternoons, he brings women to his mother’s apartment while she’s at the hospital doing work. Behind plentiful laughs is a tender portrayal of a decent fellow who just can’t succeed in sinning. This is a comedy that will linger with you even when the laughs become an appreciative memory.
Tickets are $12 general admission and $10 for students and seniors.
The play is directed by NECC theater professor Brianne Beatrice.
Tickets will be sold at the door. For more information or advance tickets please contact Brianne Beatrice at firstname.lastname@example.org
