Neil Simon makes another hilarious foray into the world of modern relationships. Jake is a novelist who seems more successful with fiction than with real life. Always a daydreamer, a marital crisis prompts imagined conversations with the many women in his life. Poignant memories of his deceased first wife and his daughter as a beloved child are interwoven with wildly comic, imagined conversations with his boisterous and bossy sister, his opinionated analyst, his disaffected current wife and a wary candidate for the position of third wife.

JAKE AND HIS WOMEN
L to R, Front Row: Tori Richnavsky, Jim Beck, Lydia D. Babbitt
