By America's great comic playwright, this memory play is set in a Yonkers, NY in 1942. The hit Broadway production featured Irene Worth, Mercedes Ruehl and Kevin Spacey in award-winning performances. Bella is 35-years-old, mentally challenged and living at home with her mother, stern Grandma Kurnitz . As the play opens, ne'r do-well son Eddie deposits his two young sons on the old lady's doorstep. He is financially strapped and taking to the road as a salesman. The boys are left to contend with Grandma, with Bella and her secret romance, and with Louie, her brother, a small-time hoodlum in a strange new world called Yonkers.

CAUTION: This show includes some mature themes and language.  Parents are cautioned that this show may not be suitable for children under 13.

Lost In Yonkers is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

THE SANTALAND DIARIES is a brilliant counterpoint to the traditional "Norman Rockwell" and sugar plum fairy Christmas. Out of work, our narrator gains employment as a Macy's elf during the holiday crunch. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter. Is Sedaris just trying to cynically jeer at what's wrong with people and Christmas, or is there glimmer of hope that Christmas hasn't been commercialized to death?

Parental Guidance: There is some crude humor and rough language. There are some parents who on occasion yell at their children, or say mean things to other adults. David Sedaris is brilliant in dragging us through the muck of human experience so that though tarnished we emerge as better individuals on the other side.
