Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find-too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous, running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…

Characters:
CORIE BRATTER (20s-30s)
A carefree young newlywed, busily trying to set up and decorate the new home she
shares with her husband, Paul.
PAUL BRATTER (20s-30s)
Corie’s husband, a young lawyer with a dry wit who likes to stay in his comfort zone.
MS. ETHEL BANKS (50s-60s)
Corie’s cautious mother who is willing to endure anything for her daughter, even a
strange escapade around New York City.
MR. VICTOR VELASCO (50s-60s)
The Bratters’ eccentric, bohemian neighbor who lives in the attic of the brownstone,
just above their apartment.
TELEPHONE MAN (20s-60s)
A good-humored man who makes observations on everyday life and relationships as he installs and fixes telephones.
DELIVERY MAN (50s-60s)
An older man who brings wedding gifts sent to the Bratters—and is exhausted by all the flights of stairs leading up to the apartment.
