Lost in Yonkers

Lost in Yonkers

April 7 – May 1, 2022

By Neil Simon

Co-directed by Marsha Mason and Rachel Alderman


What do you get when you plop two teenage Brooklyn boys into a small apartment in Yonkers with their unwelcoming grandmother, overexcitable aunt and gangster uncle? A Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy by Neil Simon that spotlights the power of a resilient family.

 

ABOUT THE PLAY

After the death of their mother, two young brothers are sent to stay with their formidable grandmother for the longest ten months of their lives. Grandmother Kurnitz is a one-woman German front—a refugee and a widow who has steeled her heart against the world. Her coldness and intolerance have crippled her own children. The boys must contend with their strong-willed grandmother, their aunt and her secret romance, and their uncle, a small-time hoodlum, in this strange new world called Yonkers.

 

Playing the role of Grandmother Kurnitz and serving as co-director, Marsha Mason draws on her place as one of the premiere interpreters of Neil Simon’s work. Married to Simon for a decade, Mason received three of her four Academy Award nominations for pieces written by the eminent dramatist (The Goodbye Girl, Chapter Two and Only When I Laugh). Mason’s appearances in other Simon works include Broadway (The Good Doctor), London’s West End (The Prisoner of Second Avenue opposite Richard Dreyfuss), film (Max Dugan Returns), and on record (the Grammy-nominated recording of The Prisoner of Second Avenue for L.A. Theatre Works).
