FEATURES / CONTAINS

Exterior Set

This elegiac memory play delightfully recalls the last time the Hines family gathered at their retreat in the Poconos. The summer of 1953 brings romantic entanglements that coalesce one idyllic afternoon; Burt Hines, mid-50's and convalescing from a second heart attack, eagerly anticipates the arrival of the ex-wife he still loves. Daughter Josie has just broken her engagement to a Harvard law student and pines for his buddy Ray, an aspiring writer with whom she once had a brief fling. Clemma, the black housekeeper at the center of the action casts a astute eye on the complications while facing with her own unresolved past.


REVIEWS

"New directions from the dazzlingly successful playwright who changed the very face of comedy on Broadway." - The New York Times, Read More

"As long as Neil Simon keeps turning out his glossy fantasies, loosely woven from mildly autobiographical inventions, such sadly endangered species as the Broadway comedy and the well made play will never give up the ghost...extremely entertaining...a play of great warmth and charm. Simon plays his characters as if he were playing poker and winning and we sit back and enjoy."-New York Post, Read More


Proposals opened on Broadway on October 29th, 1997 at the Broadhurst Theatre under the direction of Joe Mantello.
