Would you – could you – have you - ever had an affair? Barney Cashman is a married, successful New York fish restaurateur and father of three who is going through a mid-life crisis. Desperate to ensure the sum of his life is more than just “nice”, he determines to have a romantic affair…he just doesn’t know how to do it, or who to do it with. Over the course of one year he tries with three very different women with various degrees of success. Maybe the problem is the location – his mother’s small downtown apartment - or is what he is looking for unrealistic and unattainable?
First performed in 1969 this production marks the play’s 50th Anniversary by one of America’s greatest playwrights. It is a brilliant and devastating satiric comedy about romantic sexual desire and harsh reality, and is as pertinent and relevant as ever. You will roar with laughter, and at the same time perhaps wince a little in recognition of hidden human desires and vulnerabilities.
“…a very funny play…Simon’s characters are so self-identifiable…”Variety
“…the perfect choice for summer entertainment…” New York Times
"Director Tony Knight has cast Marc Clement as Barney for all three of the approximately 30 minute acts, and has given actor Stefanie Rossi a theatrical gift, the challenge of playing three very different women. Rossi is a tour-de-force........ I urge those of you who want to laugh, ..and to support a new and adventurous company to see this production

STARC Productions...have brought a series of excellently crafted two-handers to the Bakehouse, and this production continues their impressive theatrical trajectory...Marc Clement, is a gifted comic performer.... Stefanie Rossi is outstanding as each of (the three women). Lit and managed by Stephen Dean, this is a very good looking and very successful piece of theatre.

Marc Clement and Stefanie Rossi’s richly honest performance ensures this gets through to an audience. Electric night at the theatre, almost three plays for one ticket experience.
