The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires' Connecting with Community series will be joined by Diane Steinbrink who, in her own unique style, will explore the life and career of beloved playwright, Neil Simon, and explain how his background influenced his plays. 

Diane will feature monologues from some of Simon's funniest and most poignant characters from the plays "Brighton Beach Memoirs," "Broadway Bound," "Lost in Yonkers," "Forty-five Seconds from Broadway," and "The Dinner Party."

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
