"Lost in Yonkers" is a coming-of-age story set in Yonkers, New York. Simon's Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play centers around two brothers, Arty and Jay, who live with their grandmother and their mentally challenged Aunt Bella, while their father travels, desperately trying to scrape enough money together while working as a salesman to pay off his debts to a loan shark, and their mother has died of cancer. These young boys will learn lessons about love, responsibility and the importance of family that will carry them into adulthood.
The cast, under the direction of Warren Sherrill, includes Ben Feldman (Arty), Dee Jimenez (Jay), Rory Pierce (Eddie), Haley Johnson (Bella), Deborah Persoff (Grandma Kurnitz), Damon Guerrasio (Louie) and MacKenzie Beyer (Gert).
American playwright and screenwriter Neil Simon is widely regarded as one of the most successful, prolific and performed playwrights in the world. In addition to "Lost In Yonkers," which won a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize, Miners Alley has produced the "Odd Couple," and the Eugene trilogy; "Broadway Bound," 1987 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Tony Award winning coming-of-age comedy "Brighton Beach Memoirs" and WW II basic training tale "Biloxi Blues."
