Summary

“[Mark] Harelik’s irresistible comedy-drama [is] one of the sweetest and coziest plays imaginable.”—Houston Post

1909. The year that Haskell Harelik, a nineteen-year-old Russian émigré, arrives at the port of Galveston, Texas. Far from his native land and struggling with an alien language, Haskell becomes a penny-a-piece fruit peddler in and around the small town of Hamilton. In the decades that follow, he attains success as a merchant and community leader—and is recognized as a beloved husband, father, and neighbor.

This is Haskell Hareklik’s story . . . and our story.

This critically acclaimed drama celebrates the immigrant experience—the laughter and tears, the toils and triumphs.
