'Nothin' sweeter than danger, boys, am I right?'

Lost in Yonkers by Neil Simon

Directed by Leilani Boughton

September 26 to October 14

Lost in Yonkers is a coming-of-age story set in Yonkers, New York.

Teenage brothers Jay and Arty find their lives turned upside down when, after the death of their mother, their father moves south to find work, leaving them with their no-nonsense grandmother and their loving but absent-minded spinster aunt, Bella. Along the way, they're introduced to Uncle Louie, a small-time crook. Underlying tensions between Bella and her mother surface when Bella decides to marry her boyfriend, Johnny.

Over the course of the Tony and Pulitzer winning play, the brothers learn lessons about love, responsibility and the importance of family that will carry them into adulthood.
