"It's 1967 and the map of the Middle East is about to change drastically. Fueled by a love of English Romantic poetry, Adham journeys from Palestine to London with his new wife, Abir, to deliver a career-defining lecture. As the young couple's marriage is tested, Adham struggles to reconcile his ambitions with the pull of family and home. But what if seizing the moment means letting go of everything he knows?" (From the Actors Theatre of Louisville – The Humana Festival – 2012)
Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize, Lost in Yonkers is a heartfelt and hilarious coming-of-age story by America's great comic playwright, Neil Simon. Like many of Simon's plays, Lost in Yonkers is drawn from his experiences growing up in New York City. Set during World War II, two young brothers, Arty and Jay are sent to live with their formidable Grandma, the sweet but damaged Aunt Bella, and Uncle Louie, a small-time hoodlum in a strange new world called Yonkers.
One of the world's most popular musicals, Man of La Mancha, the "Impossible Dream" musical, is based on Cervantes' 17th century masterpiece Don Quixote, and tells the adventures of a delusional Spanish knight who sallies forth to restore order in the world and reclaim his lady love.
In this dark humor comedy, two different societies drastically collide: traditional and unconventional. The theme of the play highlights the comparison between those devoted to empty platitudes, lack of creativity, and hatred, and those with mysterious and inspiring minds. Witold Gombrowicz, one of the most influential playwrights of the twentieth century, brings humor, truth of human nature, and universal pieces of wisdom. Which society are you in? Come and find out!
