Brighton Beach Memoirs is the first play in Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical comedic Eugene trilogy, which also includes Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound. The story of Brighton Beach Memoirs follows almost 15-year-old Eugene Jerome as he grows up in 1937 Brooklyn. Eugene learns about girls, family, relationships, and the impending war. Eugene makes many witty observations about life and the need for the family throughout the play, as he interacts with his passionate, quirky Polish-Jewish relatives.
