A Tomato Can't Grow in the Bronx at Chain Theater

Set in a working-class neighborhood of the Bronx during the racial and political unrest of the 1960s, the multi-generational play portrays the dysfunctional family dynamics between a married couple, Sammy and Eleanor Abrams, and Eleanor's overbearing parents, Harry and Gladys Simms, who live in the apartment next door. When the couple's rebellious teenage son gets mugged, it triggers Sammy's desire to defy his powerful father-in-law and move to Long Island to claim his share of the American Dream. Harry has other ideas.
