Galleon Theatre Group Presents THE PRISONER OF SECOND AVENUE
Galleon Theatre Group Inc. presents Neil Simon's The Prisoner of Second Avenue.
A well-to-do man loses his job, succumbs to the pressures of big city life and suffers a nervous breakdown.
Mel is a well-paid executive of a high-end Manhattan firm which has suddenly hit the skids and he gets the axe. His wife Edna takes a job to tide them over, then she too is sacked.
Compounded by the air pollution killing his plants and with the walls of their apartment being paper-thin, allowing him a constant ear-full of his neighbours' private lives, things can't seem to get any worse!
Then he is robbed and his psychiatrist dies with lots of his money.
Cue the breakdown!
And you think you have problems!
Galleon Director, Kym Clayton said, "Even though this play was written around 50 years ago, it's uncanny how relevant to today Prisoner really is. The humour often comes out of pain, but aside from this there's a lot of laughs. Funny? It's hilarious!"
The Prisoner of Second Avenue stars some of Adelaide's finest acting talent. See them live on stage at the Domain Theatre, Marion Cultural Centre.
