Neil Simon's comedy Lost In Yonkers is a coming-of-age story that focuses on brothers Jay and Arty who are left in the care of their intimidating, immigrant Grandma Kurnitz and their sweet but mentally slow Aunt Bella in Yonkers, New York while their father Eddie works as a traveling salesman to pay off debts he incurred following the death of his wife. This mad-cap comedy with a heart also includes Uncle Louie, a small-time crook on the run and their Aunt Gert who speaks the second half of her sentences while breathing in. The family, learns what it means to be a family through hardship and care.
