Neil Simon is one the most successful playwrights in contemporary times. His works focus on relationships of everyday people. He is known for his tolerant and understanding view of human behavior.

In a session with Kevin Ryerson, Ahtun Re affirmed that Neil was Oliver Goldsmith in a prior incarnation.  Goldsmith wrote The Vicar of Wakefield, which was one of the most popular novels of the 18th-century. Goldsmith, in his written works, is known for his portrayal of the innate goodness of human beings, which seems to reflect Neil Simon’s sympathetic approach to his characters.
