This Pulitzer-Prize winning play is considered by many to be the pinnacle of playwright Neil Simon's illustrious career. Set during World War II, Lost in Yonkers follows the plight of two young brothers, sent to live with their domineering grandmother after their mother's death. Strong as steel and twice as cold, Grandma Kurnitz rules her roost with an iron fist. And caught in her grasp is the boys' lovely Aunt Bella, who has the mind of a child and the dreams of a woman. But when Uncle Louie, a small-time gangster with plenty of "moxie", arrives everyone gets a surprising chance at happiness. Filled with laughter, tears, and insight, this voyage of discovery intertwines themes of family, acceptance and survival.
