Set in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn, New York, this coming-of-age comedy focuses on Eugene Morris Jerome, a Polish-Jewish teenager who experiences puberty, sexual awakening, and a search for identity as he deals with his family, including an older brother, his parents, and an aunt and two cousins who come to live there after their father’s death.
The play is being directed by NWU alum Shawn Durbin.
Admission is $10 adults, $7.50 seniors, and $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased online or reserve them by calling the box office at 402.465.2384.
