09 Jan East Coast Tour is Live!
The East Coast Tour of How Many Bushels Am I Worth is officially launched.
When I started this research in 2004 I never could have imagined where it would go. I knew that I needed to tell this story, so that my grandchildren would understand their history—what their antecedents experienced in their day-to-day lives, and what it meant for us to emigrate from the USSR.
That research grew into a website, then a play, then two plays. And Then What, co-written by Kevin Olson and produced by appledoesnotfall.com and FirstHand Theatrical, premiered in Providence, RI in the summer of 2017. We wrote a second play, How Many Bushels Am I Worth?, that premiered at The Piven Theatre near Chicago, along with And Then What, in August of 2018. Tonight, How Many Bushels Am I Worth opened in Providence, where it will run at the AS220 Black Box Theatre through January 12. From there we move to Brooklyn, NY and the Mark O’Donnell Theater for a run from January 16 to the 26th.
