PTD Productions presents Lost In Yonkers

This Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy is by Neil Simon, arguably one of the most successful, prolific and performed playwrights in the world. Set in in 1942 in Yonkers, New York it records the plight of teen-aged brothers Jay and Artie, who have been left to live with their stern and unyielding grandmother.  Their mom has recently died of cancer and their father is working as a traveling salesman to pay off the loan shark's debt he incurred for her medical expenses. Not only must they contend with their terrifying Grandma Kurnitz, they must also deal with their sweet but mentally-challenged Aunt Bella and their Uncle Louie, a tough small-time gangster. The boys are truly lost in Yonkers but as they find their way, they discover much about the nature of family ties, independence and love.
