About this item
The first in Neil Simon's "Eugene Trilogy," followed by "Biloxi Blues" and "Broadway Bound "
Winner of a New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding New Play
Meet Eugene Jerome and his family, fighting the hard times and sometimes each other--with laughter, tears, and love. It is 1937 in Brooklyn during the heart of the Depression. Fifteen-year-old Eugene Jerome lives in Brighton Beach with his family. He is witty, perceptive, obsessed with sex, and forever fantasizing his baseball-diamond triumphs as star pitcher for the New York Yankees. As our guide through his "memoirs," Eugene takes us through a series of trenchant observations and insights that show his family meeting life's challenges with pride, spirit, and a marvelous sense of humor. But as World War II looms ever closer, Eugene sees his own innocence slipping away as the first important era of his life ends--and a new one begins.
This semiautobiographical classic was adapted into a film by Simon's longterm professional partner, Gene Saks, who directed, among many others, "Biloxi Blues, The Odd Couple, Broadway Bound," and" Lost in Yonkers."
