PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Central to the plot of Lost in Yonkers are the characters of the two young boys and their relationship to the family members. It is New York, 1942. After the death of their mother, the two young brothers, Jay and Artie are sent to stay with their formidable grandmother for the longest ten months of their lives. For Grandmother Kurnitz is a force to be reckoned with - a refugee and a widow who has steeled her heart against the world. Her coldness and intolerance have crippled her own children; the boys father Eddie has no self-esteem . . . their Aunt Gert has an embarrassing speech impediment . . . their Uncle Louie is a small-time gangster . . . and their Aunt Bella has the mentality of a child. But it is Bellas hunger for affection and her refusal to be denied love that saves the boys - and that leads to an unforgettable, wrenching confrontation with her mother.
