This play is part one of Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy. “Brighton Beach Memoirs” is a portrait of Simon as a young teen – named Eugene Jerome – in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn home. Eugene dreams of baseball and girls. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states, "if you didn't have a problem, you wouldn't be living here."

This performance of “Brighton Beach Memoirs,” written by Neil Simon, is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Donna Spaulding will direct the performances. Set design will be provided by Matthew Stuckel, and costume design will be provided by Jane Bagnall.
