Announcing the cast of Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers

Director Shannon Sabel has announced the cast of Lost in Yonkers, the fourth production in the 2013-2014 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Neil Simon wrote the play.

The cast includes:

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.
