LOST IN YONKERS tells the story of Jay and Arty, who find their lives turned upside down when their father Eddie moves south for work, leaving them with their no-nonsense Grandmother and their loving but absent-minded spinster Aunt Bella. Along the way, they're also introduced to their Uncle Louie, a small-time crook and their kind Aunt Gert, who has developed a serious (but hilarious) breathing problem due to the fear she has for her own mother.

The December production will be presented as a semi-staged reading with proceeds from ticket sales going to The National Alzheimer's Association, in honor of the late Neil Simon who recently passed away from the disease.
