Rose and Walsh
Rose and Walsh, the last play ever written by Neil Simon, is said to be inspired by the relationship between writers Lillian Hellman and Dashiell Hammett, though some say there is an autobiographical element in it.
Rose and Walsh portrays two great literary figures and 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.
