Out of the Apple Orchard

Triple award-winning team: Author Yvonne David, Playwright Ellen W. Kaplan and Director Kenny Howard, a Tony Award-Winning Producer.

Yvonne David was inspired by A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and her book, Out of the Apple Orchard, explores similar themes, of hunger, forgiveness, healing and new beginnings.

In the fall of 1910, a Jewish family, who recently immigrated from the Old Country, moves from the Lower East Side of New York City to the hamlet of Mountaindale in the Catskills for fresh country air. Papa is too sick to work and food is scarce. On his way to school, twelve-year-old Adam Bieman is hungry and sees the apples in the Friedland Orchard. He cannot resist the ripe, red fruit. A spunky young boy, Adam hides the apples in his cap, a hand-me-down from Papa and two sizes too big. But when the farmer has to climb farther up the tree to pick apples during a terrible storm, slips off the ladder and badly gashes his leg, Adam has more to face than the angry farmer. Ages 8 and Up.

By supporting Jewish Family Services Orlando and St. Vincent de Paul Society, nondenominational organizations, it is our intention to make the public aware of the severity of food insecurity, just as Dickens wanted to address the plight of the poor in his day. In addition, connecting with Jewish Family Services and St. Vincent de Paul Society will bring awareness to the need for counseling to first responders, victims, their families and friends suffering from the recent tragedies in Orlando. Forgiveness, healing and new beginnings, as showed in the story, can mend broken relationships, with self and with others.
