Finalist! 1987 Pulitzer Prize in Drama

Part three of Neil Simon's acclaimed autobiographical trilogy finds Eugene and his older brother Stanley trying to break into the world of show business as professional comedy writers while coping with their parents' troubled marriage and socialist grandfather at home. When their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, the family is upset to hear a thinly-veiled portrait of themselves played for laughs. 

"Contains some of the author's most accomplished writing." - The New York Times

"A lovely play; warm, perceptive and gently humorous." - Newsday

"Expectedly funny and unexpectedly moving." - New York Daily News
