A Tomato Can't Grow in the Bronx
This is award-winning play takes place during 1968, a particularly tumultuous year, yet these richly identifiable and flawed characters confront many of the same social issues that we face today, struggling to communicate, connect and love each other. Their hopes and fears and dreams belong to any age, and to any family.
Set in a working-class neighborhood of the Bronx during the racial and political unrest of the 1960s, the multi-generational story portrays the dysfunctional family dynamics between a married couple, Sammy (Mike Roche) and Eleanor Abrams (Holly O’Brien), and Eleanor's overbearing parents, Harry (Jackie Kusher) and Gladys Simms (Andrea Bell Wolff), who live in the apartment next door. When the couple's rebellious teenage son Elliot (Spencer Neumann) 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.
