Brighton Beach Memoirs (1983), a play in two acts by Neil Simon. Eugene Jerome , an ambitious, somewhat starry‐eyed teenager who wants to be a writer, lives with his extended Jewish family in a lower‐middle‐class home that is filled with tension. His father, Jack, works as a cutter in the garment trade, and his long, hard hours have wearied him. His mother, Kate, and her sister, Blanche, have harbored age‐old angers that finally explode. Nora is a beautiful young teenager trying to break into the world of Broadway Theatre, and Laurie is a young girl with a supposed heart problem that looks towards everyone else to do things for her. Eugene also has some assets, such as an ability to see through life’s short‐range problems and view matters with a cutting wit. Most problems do, in fact, seem to work themselves out for the Jeromes and there is every reason to believe Eugene will realize his ambition. An admittedly autobiographical work, many critics hailed the comedy as a move away from the wisecracking formula plays that Simon had previously offered.
