Lost in Yonkers

Neil Simon's award-winning comedy-drama, set during World War II, brings you several unforgettable characters in this coming of age tale that focuses on brothers Arty and Jay, left in the care of their Grandma Kurnitz and Aunt Bella in Yonkers, New York. When Bella falls in love and decides to get married, the two boys witness the titanic struggle that ensues between Bella and Grandma, who is determined to prevent the marriage. Hilarious and heartbreaking, Lost in Yonkers may be Simon's best play.
