Neil Simon's 'Laughter on the 23rd Floor' to be performed in Sun City

SUN CITY, SC (WTOC) -

The Sun City Community Theater goes edgy this weekend.

With their production of Neil Simon's Laughter on the 23rd Floor, the story of eight comedy writers working on a 50's era show for Sid Ceasar and Imogene Coca. The play is a thoughtful comedy produced by a crew of about 70 Sun City volunteers

It is laced with colorful language so if you go to this one be aware that it's not for children nor for those who are offended by adult language. 

"They have a way of explaining their feelings and it gets to be a little earthy at times I'll tell you.  But it's still very, very poignant too because you see the insides of their emotional workings if you will.  And it’s funny; very, very, funny,” said Wendell MacNeal, director.

“The edge is definitely the words that are being used in the play. There's a lot of adult language because the interaction is between eight writers, seven men and a woman, in the back room of a New York City office. And it’s all about being realistic,” said Ralph Spiegel, producer.

The play runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights with a matinee on Sunday. Non-Sun City residents are welcome, just tell them at the gate that you're going to the play.
