Neil Simon's Pulitzer Prize and
Tony Award-winning play about
an eccentric New York family in
crisis during the summer of 1942.
Old country rules clash with new
world ideals as a strong-willed
grandmother struggles to rule
her children and grandchildren
with an iron fist. This coming of age story is both humorous
and touching as it follows a
dysfunctional family learning
to cope and evolve during
incredibly stressful times.

"In the Theatre, everyone is naked" - Finding Our Humanity Through the Stage.
A conversation with Dr. Vivian Rakoff, author, former Director of the Clarke Institute Psychiatry and a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto and members of the Lost in Yonkers cast.
Join us for a post-performance discussion about the theatre's role and power in laying bare our universal humanity.
A focus of the Q/A will be on our common and individual social reactions to issues of mental health, family history and interaction.
This post show Conversation is in partnership with Bookclub-in-a-Box - Marilyn Herbert, Director
"Broadway desperately needs a comedy, a drama, and a hit. With Lost in Yonkers, Mr. Simon has given us all three"
– Wall Street Journal
'"Laughter and tears have come together in a new emotional truth. There are moments in this play when you experience a new kind of laughter for Simon,
a silent laughter that doesn't explode into a yuk but implodes straight into your heart"
