It is odd how few plays I own considering my theater experience. I guess most of them are in scripts.
But it does highlight pretty clearly who my favorite playwright is.
I love Neil Simon. I love his wit and his characters. Any time I had to choose a monologue to give, it was almost always Neil Simon.
Barefoot in the Park is my favorite. I even managed to work it into a conflict management assignment in grad school. I analyzed one of Paul and Corie’s many arguments and made the class watch it during my presentation. They know they loved it.
His most famous play is probably The Odd Couple. I love Felix. He is one of my top five favorite TV/movie characters.
