A TOMATO CAN’T GROW IN THE BRONX by Gary Morgenstein

£5.00

Set in 1968, A Tomato Can’t Grow in the Bronx is a funny drama about a Bronx Jewish blue-collar family who must overcome emotional warfare as they try to fulfill their dream of an idyllic suburban home where tomatoes can grow. The play evokes the tumultuous 1960s, from racism and white flight to the generation gap through a gritty, honest look at a readily identifiable family struggling to love each other.
