The most widely produced play in the country in 1991, this play gently grapples with the thorny questions that plague the USA-who deserves to belong here and what do we owe each other? Set in Hamilton, Texas, The Immigrant tells the story of Russian-Jewish immigrant Haskell Harelik as he settles into America at the turn of the 20th century. Unable to speak English, the outsider pulls his banana cart through the staunch Christian community seeking shelter. Over a span of 30 years, this tiny town becomes the home for his young family as religion meets religion, culture meets culture, fear meets fear, and love meets love. Based on the life of the playwright's grandfather, this play resonates deeply today, as immigration policies and anti-Semitic rhetoric embroil the globe in conflict.
