The Prisoner of Second Avenue is Next at Theatre Coppell

by Neil Simon

Directed by Dennis Raveneau

Mel Edison is a well-paid executive in a high-end Manhattan firm, which has suddenly hit the skids, and he gets the ax. His wife Edna takes a job to tide them over, then she too is sacked. Compounded by the air pollution killing his plants and the walls of his apartment, which are paper-thin, which allow him a constant earful of his neighbors’ private lives, things can’t seem to get any worse. Mel does the only thing left for him to do – he has a nervous breakdown – and it’s the best thing that ever happened to him. It’s a hilarious situation at every turn.
