Lost In Yonkers by Neil Simon. Winner of the 1991 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. In 1942, young teenagers Arty and Jay are left in the care of their Grandma and Aunt Bella in Yonkers, New York by their desperate father, Eddie. Grandma is a severe, frightfully intimidating immigrant, and Bella is a sweet but mentally slow and highly excitable woman who longs to marry an usher at the local movie house. Her brother Louie is a small-time, tough-talking hoodlum who is on the run, while her sister Gert suffers from a breathing problem which is more psychological than physical.
