Auditions: "Lost in Yonkers" by Neil Simon.
"Lost in Yonkers" is a heartfelt and hilarious coming-of-age story about a very eccentric family by America's great comic playwright, Neil Simon. Like many of Simon's plays, LOST IN YONKERS is drawn from his experiences growing up in New York City. Set during World War II, two young brothers, Arty and Jay, are sent to live with their formidable German Jewish immigrant grandmother, the sweet but mentally challenged Aunt Bella, and Uncle Louie, a small-time hoodlum running away from gangsters. LOST IN YONKERS tells the story of a family coping with the challenges of keeping together during World War II and the struggles to balance love, duty, devotion, and trust with tough times.
