Open: 10/03/19- Close: 10/13/19 APPLE, TABLE, PENNY
Max Gelman, a frustrated Borscht Belt comedian, often neglected his roles as husband and father to follow his dream. But now something's wrong. He's been acting strangely and his wife and children are concerned. So is he.

Complete with jokes, the occasional song, and a cast of characters that includes Carmen Miranda and Jackie Gleason, APPLE, TABLE, PENNY showcases generational struggles, the special love between a grandfather and his granddaughter, and coming to terms with the inevitable that awaits us all.

Part of Emerging Artists Theatre’s New Work Series

The cast features Abraham McNeil Adams, Jerry Ferris, Peter Levine, Leslie Lynn Meeker, Vivian Meisner, Laura Sametz and Paula Shtein.

The creative team includes lighting design by Brian Aldous, costume design by Joey Kovach and stage management by Emily Stine.

Open: 09/28/19- Close: 09/28/19 THE TALL BOY - A TALE OF REFUGEE CHILDREN
 

The Tall Boy is set in occupied Germany in the aftermath of WW II.  An American relief worker tells the story of three orphaned boys, Czech, Polish and Italian aged 15, 14 and 12 who are dumped at a displaced persons camp for “unaccompanied children”.  But the boys are GI mascots – they were swept up by US Army units during the war.  They wear cut-down US Army uniforms and speak English in accents learned from the soldiers who befriended them, and they are desperate to get to America to be reunited with their Army buddies.  But the US isn’t welcoming refugees at this time, and only one boy has a soldier who is committed to adopting him - but that soldier happens to be black.
