Gary Morgenstein’s novels and plays have been featured in national media from The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Parade Magazine, the New York Post, and Sports Illustrated to NPR. Winner of three 2022 Perry Awards including Best Original Play, Morgenstein’s multi-generational drama A Tomato Can’t Grow in the Bronx about a Bronx Jewish working class family in the tumultuous 1960s will premiere December 2-17 at the Chain Theater in Manhattan. His Broadway World award-winning (for Best Play) A Black and White Cookie, depicting the unlikely friendship between a conservative African American newsstand owner and a politically radical Jew, premiered this summer at New York City’s The Tank theater and was hailed as “fascinating” and “a heartwarming story”. Morgenstein’s latest play is Free Palestine, where two grieving families are caught up in a public clash over academic freedom and political bullying triggered by the firing of a Jewish teacher of Middle Eastern studies. An accomplished novelist, his seven novels include the critically-acclaimed dystopian political trilogy A Mound Over Hell (“1984 Meets Shoeless Joe”), A Fastball for Freedom (“a dystopian Field of Dreams”) and the upcoming A Dugout to Peace, from bhcpress.com.
