SYNOPSIS: Twenty years after the American Civil War, a small Florida farm gets a remarkable import—a talking mango tree who’s desperate to bear fruit but lacks confidence. The Mango Tree goes on a journey of enchanted growth with the help of a farmer (Ralph), the farmer’s daughter (Sweet Pea), and the soulful songs of the sun (Dee), but the owner of the land (Zucker) has a rotten plan to steal The Mango Tree’s magic. As a brutal winter threatens the future of the farm, will love or greed prevail?
This piece was originally developed as part of Cahoots Theatre Company’s HOT HOUSE Creator’s Unit.
