Brighton Beach Memoirs

By Neil Simon

Directed by Derek Bertelsen

July 27th through July 31st, 2016
Grace Performing Arts Center


Neil Simon's semi-autobiographical comedy follows Depression-era teenager Eugene Jerome as he pursues his dreams of becoming a successful writer, while dealing with the pangs of growing up. Brighton Beach Memoirs is a captivating play filled with memorable dialogue from one of the forefathers of comedic playwriting.

What Director Derek Bertelsen has to say about the production:
"I'm very excited to work with actors on this material and to bring this show to life. I'm a sucker for nostalgia, sentiment, and dysfunctional families and this show has them all. This is a show that audiences will definitely want to check out. Although it takes place during the bygone era of the Great Depression, it deals with many issues that today's modern families face. In the end, Brighton Beach Memoirs reminds us all of the importance of family in changing times."
