About this show

Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize, Lost in Yonkers is about finding one's way through the tangled web of family relationships without losing the sense of self…or sense of humor. Set in Yonkers in 1942, the play focuses on brothers Arty and Jay, left in the care of their feuding relatives Grandma Kurnitz and Aunt Bella. Lost in Yonkers epitomizes Simon's trademark mix of comedy and drama: the one-liners are hilarious, but the characters' relationships are poignant. The New York Post hailed Lost in Yonkers, "The best play Simon ever wrote."
