Rose and Walsh follows two great literary figures and the depth and consequence of their enduring love. At a beautiful beach house on the tip of Long Island, Rose, a celebrated but near penniless author, receives nightly visits from Walsh, the love of her life and a famous writer himself. Now Walsh must go away forever, but not before securing Rose's financial future with an extraordinary proposal that promises to change everything.
"Neil Simon has been dancing around the issue of aging for about a decade now, never going toe-to-toe with the real consequence of old age: death. In 'Rose and Walsh,' he finally confronts the afterlife and its effect on loved ones left behind, creating his most rewarding play in years...There’s a big audience for a work like this...and 'Rose and Walsh' could well see extended runs anywhere it’s staged — even Broadway." - Variety, Read More
"Simon's old self shines through...it's clear that a sharp wit was behind this play..." - Talkin' Broadway
"Simon still has a knack for the female mystique...Rose and Walsh could be a definitive Simon production." - Theatre Mania
