Show Description

Theater Breaking Through Barriers presents the first Off-Broadway revival of this brilliant play by one of our greatest American playwrights, Neil Simon. Herb Tucker, a struggling, middle-aged screenwriter with writer’s block, receives an unexpected surprise, when his daughter, Libby, whom he abandoned along with the rest of his Brooklyn family 16 years earlier, arrives at his West Hollywood home with aspirations of breaking into the movie business. Libby, who barely remembers her father, not only forces Herb to reexamine the responsibilities of parenthood, but also makes him come to terms with his on-again/off-again relationship with his current girlfriend, Steffy.

 All performances will be open captioned and audio described.
