BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS, the semi-autobiographical play by Neil Simon, opens July 6 at Town Players.
This coming-of-age comedy focuses on Eugene Jerome, a Jewish teen growing up in 1937 Brooklyn, as he experiences puberty, sexual awakening and a search for identity as he deals with his family.
Part of what makes this play so popular is its depiction of the daily life of closely packed relatives who keep getting under one another's feet - and on each other's nerves - while still maintaining a close, loving bond.
BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS is directed by Lester Colodny of Fairfield.
BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS runs July 6,7, 13,14,15, 20,21, 27,28,29. Curtain times are 8 pm Fridays and Saturdays, with 2 pm matinees on July 15 and 29. Tickets are $20, $15 for matinee performances, and $10 children 10 and under.
