The Swan Theatre Company presents

Lost In Yonkers
By Neil Simon
Directed by Lyn Lockyer

Monday 16th to Saturday 21st July 2012 @ 7.45pm

Jay and Arty are about to spend the longest year of their lives. In order to pay off a debt he accrued while their mother was sick, the boys' father Eddie must leave them with their Grandmother Kurnitz while he travels selling scrap iron for the war effort. Grandma Kurnitz is a no-nonsense, tough-as- nails German-Jewish immigrant who wants nothing to do with having two teenage boys in her house. Despite the fact that she runs a candy store, Grandma Kurnitz' patience for children is non-existent. Her goal to "toughen up" the boys clashes with their Aunt Bella's desire to shower them with attention...and ice cream. But Aunt Bella has some surprises of her own that threaten to upset the delicate peace in the precariously-balanced household. And when Uncle Louie arrives, with a gun and a mysterious black bag, the boys learn life lessons about family, love and responsibility that will stay with them for the rest of their days.

Tickets still available for all nights but hurry...
