Considered one of Neil Simon's best works, this memory play is set in Yonkers in 1942. The hit Broadway production featured Irene Worth, Mercedes Ruehl, and Kevin Spacey in award-winning performances. Bella is thirty-five years old, mentally challenged, and living at home with her mother, stern Grandma Kurnitz. As the play opens, ne'er-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. Laughter and tears come together in a new emotional truth. Joy and tears tug at the heart strings of life.

Showings: February 21-24, February 28, March 1-3. Nightly shows start at 7:30 p.m.and Sunday Matinees at 2:30 p.m. promptly.
