The Apple Does Not Fall:
Journeys of a Russian-Jewish Family
A new theatrical event “The Apple Does Not Fall: Journeys of a Russian-Jewish Family” will have its Chicago-area premiere in August at Piven Theater, 927 Noyes Street, Evanston. The event features two plays, written by a Russian-Jewish emigre, Bena Shklyanoy and Kevin Olson of FirstHand Theatrical, plus a short film “Cultural Inheritance” created by Shklyanoy’s granddaughter, Abigail Matz.
These stories are eyewitness accounts of an ordinary Russian-Jewish family and their life experiences from the pre-Bolshevik and Soviet eras to the 1970’s immigration to the US.
