Why We Need Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers
Coates, Nathan
English Journal, v95 n1 p23 Sep 2005
Nathan Coates, a high school teacher, describes the necessity of comedy in classrooms and also offers many points of discussion for approaching Neil Simon's play. Neil Simon's "Lost in Yonkers", which has won the Tony Award for the best play and the Pulitzer Award, both in 1991, tackles the toughest problems with the delicacy of a safecracker and gives the wisdom of laughter.
