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...
