Featuring Grossmont College drama students and directed by Grossmont College Theatre Arts instructor Jeannette Thomas, Lost in Yonkers is a story set in 1942 about brothers Artie and Jay who learn about the definition of family from their gangster uncle, an aunt with the mentality of a child and a steely, formidable grandmother who struggles to understand love. Will it be the longest ten months of their lives? Or will they all learn that “love” comes in many forms? Lost in Yonkers contains adult situations and language.

General admission for each performance is $12 per person.
