THE IMMIGRANT, by Mark Harelik, directed by Randal Myler Monday, February 25 at 4PM Rural Central Texas, 1909: A young Russian-Jewish immigrant, newly arrived in America through the port of Galveston, pulls his banana cart into the hamlet of Hamilton. Fleeing the vicious pogroms of his homeland, he has left his sought refuge in the land of the free. Able to speak only Yiddish, alone in the midst of a staunchly Christian community, he begs for shelter. Over the next 30 years, he makes a home and raises a family in this tiny town. The Immigrant is the story of a young Russian-Jewish couple and the local couple that take them in, as religion meets religion, culture meets culture, fear meets fear, and love meets love. This is the true story of Haskell Harelik, the Immigrant.
The Immigrant has played around the country in over two dozen regional theaters, including: ACT, Actors Theater of Louisville, Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Alley Theater, Arena Stage, the Mark Taper Forum, Capital Rep, Northlight Theater and the Old Globe Theatre.
