The 2013-2014 MainStage season: Lost in Yonkers

The fourth production of the 2013-2014 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette will be Lost in Yonkers, directed by Shannon Sabel. It was written by Neil Simon.

Performances will be Friday, February 28 through Saturday, March 15 in the historic Monon Depot Theatre at 320 N. 5th Street - the corner of 5th Street and North Street - in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday performances will begin at 2:30 p.m.

By America's great comic playwright, this memory play is set in 1942 Yonkers. Bella is 35 years old, mentally challenged and living at home with her mother, the stern Grandma Kurnitz. As the play opens, ne'er-do-well son, Eddie, deposits his two young sons on the old lady's doorstep. 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.
