The award-winning Stratford Playhouse presents Brighton Beach Memoirs, Neil Simon’s hilarious semi-autobiographical portrait of the writer as seen through the eyes of 15 year-old Eugene Morris.

Morris’ chronicles of his misadventures growing up in 1930s are a reminder that family is the one constant in the crazy journey of life. Directed by Christian Holmes, this Tony award-winning play is an affectionate and entertaining lesson in overcoming hard times with warmth and humor. Holmes is excited to bring this play to the Memorial community, as well as showcase talented young actors.
