Tech Theatre Company to present Neil Simon play Oct. 17-19, 24-26

HOUGHTON -- The Tech Theatre Company will present Brighton Beach Memoirs, by playwright Neil Simon, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 17 to 19 and Oct. 24 to 26, in the McArdle Theatre, in the Walker Center on the Michigan Tech campus.

Brighton Beach Memoirs is a witty, yet poignant recollection of growing up during the Depression. Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical play features a 15-year-old Eugene Jerome, an aspiring writer coming of age in a loving, yet crowded home in Brooklyn, New York, in 1937. Eugene struggles with his desire to hold onto childhood dreams (like pitching for the New York Yankees), while trying to understand puberty as he turns the corner into manhood, helping his older brother to provide for the family. Note: Strong language and adult content may not be suitable for young children.

Tickets are $13 for adults and $8 for youth. Click here to purchase tickets on line. Tickets will also be sold at the door at McArdle Theatre.
