Come Blow Your Horn


Neil Simon

Directed by Mark Jephcott

2nd - 9th May, 2009

The play centres on Alan and Buddy Baker, brothers who have decided to leave home and experience the good life. In the beginning of the play, Alan is the typical lady's man, and his younger brother is the twenty one year old virgin who has decided to run away from home, and leave the family's waxed fruit business. As the play progresses, Alan finds out that Connie, one of the ladies that he is sleeping with, is "the girl" and without her in his life, he falls apart. Buddy, however has taken his brother's place in life, becoming the ladies man, while his brother sits around and mopes over the loss of Connie, the girl of his dreams.
