Brighton Beach Memoirs

Brighton Beach Memoirs by Neil Simon
Playing through March 7th
presented by Blue Ridge Community Theater
Blue Ridge Georgia

Dramatic Comedy Neil Simon's autobiographical play of the young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn house. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and Grandpa the Socialist; you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household.
