Brighton Beach Memoirs

by Neil Simon

Set in the Brighton Beach area of Brooklyn in the Great Depression, Eugene, dreaming of baseball and girls, must cope with the mundane existence of his family life: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche and her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style.
