In their final main stage production of the season, Unity Theatre will give audiences a glimpse into the life of one American family through the play “Brighton Beach Memoirs.”
The comedy, written by the award-winning playwright Neil Simon, is the first part in the autobiographical trilogy about the author. The story features 15-year-old Eugene Jerome, who represents Simon, as he narrates his life growing up in a Brooklyn borough in 1937. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life with his formidable mother, overworked father, worldly older brother Stanley, widowed Aunt Blanche and her two young but rapidly maturing daughters. The play is rated PG-13.
