About this show

Russian-Jewish emigrant Haskell Harelik arrives at the port of Galveston, Texas, in 1909 seeking refuge from his homeland. With only his banana cart in tow, Harelik finds compassion and friendship from an unlikely couple, falls in love, and creates a pastoral life for his family. Drawing from his own life, playwright Mark Harelik tells the story of his grandparents' first 30 years living in Texas in his biographical play, The Immigrant.
