One of Neil Simon's most popular comedies, The Prisoner of Second Avenue tells the story of advertising executive Mel Edison (Jonathan Nelson) who has just lost his job after many years and now has to cope with being unemployed at middle age. Mel and his steadfast wife Edna (Elise Godfrey) are pitted against an assault by modern Manhattan-heat waves, garbage strikes, noisy neighbors and rampant crime.
Will Mrs. Edison's ascent into the marketplace balance the ledger or will Mel's cabin fever drive him to a nervous breakdown? Will the loving care of his brother Harry (Bruce Apar), his three sisters (Connie Dyckman, Elaine Hartel and Anne Rodgers Pearl) and Edna strengthen his grip on mental stability? The themes assure the audience of relevance for these times.
Seasoned director Joel Karpoff will tackle Simon's trademark fast-paced wit and, in this case, bleak view of American life. Visit our website at www.YCPTW.org or email us at YCPTW@bestweb.net for more information.
