Interior Set

Middle-aged and married, overworked and overweight, Barney Cashman wants to join the sexual revolution before it's too late and arranges three seductions: the first, Elaine Navazio proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses; Bobbi Michele is next, a 20-ish actress who's too kooky by half; finally comes September and Jeanette Fisher, a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney's best friend.

"Mr. Simon has created a great character here...it is extraordinarily funny and yet also charming...as witty as ever, perhaps wittier."-The New York Times

"Delightfully hilarious and witty, as well as filled with wisdom about human nature...an uproariously funny author. But he is far more than that. He has a mellow and compassionate understanding of how weak and essentially well meaning mankind behaves...a genuinely brilliant play."-New York Post

Review: Last of the Red Hot Lovers

User Review  - Colleen (of the Crawling Chaos) - Goodreads

I find Neil Simon sort of hit or miss, but this play is pretty funny. I'm doing the part of Bobbi... need to start studying lines at some point. Read full review
