A TOMATO CAN'T GROW IN THE BRONX Aspires to the American Dream Starting December 2nd at Chain Theater
A Tomato Can't Grow Can't Grow in the Bronx, a multi-award-winning drama by playwright/novelist Gary Morgenstein, opens at Chain Theater on Friday, December 2nd for a limited 10-performance engagement thru December 17th. Bernice Garfield-Szita directs. Featured in the cast are Jackie Kusher*, Andrea Bell Wolff*, Mike Roche*, Holly O'Brien*, Marina Rebecca Chan and Spencer Neumann. *(Members of Actors Equity).
Set in a working-class neighborhood of the Bronx during the racial and political unrest of the 1960s, the play portrays the dysfunctional family dynamics between a married couple and the wife's overbearing parents who live in the apartment next door. When the couple's teenage son gets mugged, it triggers the husband's desire to move to Long Island and claim his share of the American Dream. His powerful father-in-law has other ideas. Although the play's characters are from a turbulent decade past, they deal with many of the same social issues we confront today.
