Beigel’s Bakery in Brooklyn has made over 100 million black and white cookies. We are proud to have them sponsor our show. We expect to hand out their black and white cookies after our performances.
In a provocative and poignant drama about hope trumping polarization, an exorbitant rent increase forces Harold Wilson, a gruff conservative African American in his late 60s, to close his East Village newsstand after 30 years and reluctantly retire to Florida with his niece Carol. Enter Albie Sands, an eccentric 1960s Jewish radical, who persuades Harold to fight the landlord. Overcoming anti-Semitism, Harold and Albie form an unlikely yet powerful friendship to confront corporate greed and their own mortality.
