Default Cork Rep presents Lost In Yonkers

Cork Arts Theatre Repertory Company presents

Lost in Yonkers
by Neil Simon

This funny and poignant, Pulitzer prize-winning play from the pen of Neil Simon tells the story of an eccentric New York family in crisis in the summer of 1942.

On the run from a loan shark, a frightened and weak-willed father leaves his two teenage boys, Jay and Arty, with their domineering grandmother, who runs a candy store in Yonkers. The effect of the old woman's tyranny over two generations of offspring becomes evident as she coldheartedly attempts to control not only their lives but also that of her mentally-challenged, middle-aged, daughter Bella, who desperately yearns for love and independence.

The boys are forced to live by their stern grandmother's rules until their gangster uncle , Louie, comes to town one night and goes into hiding in the family home. Uncle Louie ends up helping both the boys and Bella understand their ageing grandmother and realise the importance of acceptance and love, despite the hardship of life in Yonkers.

With a wonderful Cork cast under the accomplished direction of Trevor Ryan, this is a production that is sure to be a hit with cork audiences. So book your seat early!
