The Marco Players honor the memory of playwright Neil Simon, master of Broadway comedy and a prolific writer for stage and screen with this production of “Come Blow Your Horn” (1963).

Set in the early 60s in New York City, a set of aging parents (Len Becker and Karen Ezrine) watch their sons, Alan (Jesse Heindl), a 30-ish swinging bachelor and eager younger brother Buddy (Elijah Bettencourt) grow into adult life while having access to too much time, money and women (Tracy Lane). What can a parent do but watch and pray?
