by Neil Simon

directed by Dana O’Neal

Synopsis:
Love, responsibility and family feature in this play from America's greatest comic playwright
By America's great comic playwright, this memory play is set in Yonkers in 1942. Bella is thirty-five years old, mentally challenged, and living at home with her mother, stern Grandma Kurnitz. As the play opens, ne'er-do-well son Eddie deposits his two young sons on the old lady's doorstep. He is financially strapped and taking to the road as a salesman. The boys are left to contend with Grandma, with Bella and her secret romance, and with Louie, her brother, a small-time hoodlum in a strange new world called Yonkers.

WINNER - 1991 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
WINNER - 1991 Tony Award, Best Play

"The best play Simon ever wrote." - New York Post
"Broadway desperately needs a comedy, a drama, and a hit. With Lost in Yonkers, Mr. Simon has given us all three." - Wall Street Journal
"One of Simon's most impressive and funniest plays." - New York Daily News

Be prepared to read sides from the show. A dramatic/comedic monologue (can be from this play or from another one) is helpful but not required. All are welcome—no experience necessary. Auditioners should be familiar with Neil Simon’s work and the Jewish-American experience.
