American playwright and screenwriter Neil Simon is widely regarded as one of the most successful, prolific and performed playwrights in the world. Brighton Beach Memoirs is part one of Neil Simon’s autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up.
Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: a formidable mother, overworked father and his worldly older brother Stanley.
Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche and her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states “if you didn’t have a problem, you wouldn’t be living here.”

The play contains adult themes and language.

Produced by special arrangements with Samuel French, Inc.
Questions about the performances can be directed to Performing Arts Department Chair Dr. Mike Solomonson at 536-6217.

Smoke Signals

Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014
Show begins at 7 p.m.

Rated PG-13

To celebrate Native American Heritage Month, come and enjoy the first film to be written, directed, and co-produced by Native Americans. Native American writer Sherman Alexie scripted this adaptation of his 1993 short story collection The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven. Director Chris Eyre (a University of Arizona graduate) created a film that Spirituality and Practice described as poking "fun at the interface between life on 'the rez' and the dominant white culture. It also reveals how ritual and friendship can be healing medicine."
