THE PRISONER OF 2ND AVENUE, a black comedy by Neil Simon, revolves around the escalating problems of a middle-aged couple living on Second Avenue on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Mel Edison has just lost his job after many years and now has to cope with being unemployed at middle age.  During an intense summer heat wave and a prolonged garbage strike, which just exacerbates Edison's plight to no end, he and his wife Edna have to deal with noisy neighbors, loud sounds emanating from Manhattan streets up to their apartment and even a robbery of their apartment during broad daylight.  After all of this it is up to Mel's family to help him get a firm grip back on reality after he suffers a nervous breakdown.
