|R. Bruce Connelly|
Meet Barney Cashman, a 47-year-old restaurateur, who decides he needs to take a break from his 23-year-old marriage. On three different afternoons, he brings women to his mother’s apartment while she’s at the hospital volunteering. Behind plentiful laughs is a tender portrayal of a decent fellow who just can’t succeed in sinning.
R. Bruce Connelly returns to Ivoryton to play the hopelessly faithful Cashman. He iwll be joined by Playhouse veteran Beverley Taylor, Kate Hubbard and Bonnie Black.
Longtime wives who attend TheLast of the Red Hot Lovers are urged to bring their longtimehusbands. Each guy may well see how smart he’s been to not humiliatehimself the way Barney does!
