There’s liver for dinner, holes in his shoes, and a war on the horizon, but 15-year-old Eugene Jerome would rather think about baseball…and girls. Surrounded by his overworked mother and father, his “worldly” older brother, his aunt, and two cousins, Eugene has plenty of material for his future career as a writer. This coming-of-age story is an affectionate, entertaining lesson in overcoming hard times with warmth and humor.

Brighton Beach Memoirs is the first installment in Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical Eugene Jerome trilogy (which includes the plays Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound) and is one of America’s most cherished plays. The New York Daily News called the original New York production “…in many respects Neil Simon’s funniest, richest, and consequently the most affecting of his plays”, and elevated Simon into the pantheon of great American playwrights.
