WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jeff Goldblum and Mercedes Ruehl star in the West End revival of Neil Simon's award-winning comedy The Prisoner of Second Avenue. Terry Johnson directs the production for The Old Vic Theatre Company. Set in the 1970's, the black comedy depicts a New York couple, Mel (Goldblum) and Edna Edison (Ruehl), enduring the trials and tribulations of city life. Mel is made redundant and the stress of an economic crisis and urban life pushes him into having a nervous breakdown. The family gathers to offer support, with Edna stoically bearing the burden of his disintegration and self-pity.
