Schull Drama Group will be staging Last of the Red Hot Lovers in Schull Parish Hall on February 17, 18 and 19, in Skibbereen Town Hall on February 24, and again in Schull on March 18 and 19. Curtain is at 8 pm. Admission is €10. Concessions are available for seniors and students.
Last of the Red Hot Lovers is one of the most amusing of Neil Simon’s comedies. The play is set in the 60s in the South of England. It focuses on Barney Cashman – middle-aged, married and overworked – as he begins to feel a desire for sexual adventure. Over a nine-month period, he invites three women to his mother’s apartment to have an afternoon of extramarital sex. The first, Elaine Navazio, proves to be a bundle of neuroses; Bobbi Michele is next, a kooky 20-ish actress; finally Jeanette Fisher, a gloomy, depressed housewife who is married to Barney’s best friend. Will Barney’s attempts at seduction be successful?
