Molly Thornton of Riverton directed a production of "Lost in Yonkers" this week at Chadron

State College. The Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play is set in a New York borough where teenager brothers Jay and Artie are left to live with their dysfunctional relatives above their candy store, for the summer while their father goes on the road to earn money to pay off medical bills accumulated prior to his wife's death.

Chadron State College, which was founded in 1911, is the only four-year, regionally-accredited college in the western half of Nebraska.
