Springfield Civic Theatre presents Jake's Women by Neil Simon

October 11 / 7:30 pm to October 12 / 7:30 pm

Neil Simon makes another hilarious foray into the world of modern relationships. Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than real life, faces a marital crisis due to his tendency to daydream about the women in his life. The comic and sometimes moving flashbacks and visits played in his mind are interrupted by appearances of the actual women in his life. Jake's women include his revered first wife who was killed years earlier in a car accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving him, and a "girlfriend" he starts dating after his wife leaves. When the women start appearing in his mind without being invited we are left to wonder if Jake can pull it together and finally live his life in the real world.

Performances Friday October 11 at 7:30 and Saturday October 12 at 2:00 and 7:30 PM
