WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Paper Mill will warm your heart this winter with Neil Simon's entertaining and thought-provoking classic Lost in Yonkers. Often proclaimed as Neil Simon's best work, this Tony Award-winning and Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a funny and touching portrayal of acceptance, survival, and family dynamics. Set during World War II, brothers Arty and Jay are sent to live with their frightfully intimidating Grandma and sweet but mentally slow Aunt Bella, punctuated by visits from their "gangster" Uncle Louie. This masterwork is an unsentimental examination of lives in an oppressive household, climaxing with a dramatic confrontation between the bitter mother and lonely daughter. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll think. And, in its honest, unerring portrait of a family, you just might recognize your own experience.
