Indianapolis, 1968. Three women - three generations of one Jewish-American family - look back on the first decades of the twentieth century. Each struggles with the sins and ghosts of the past, and her place in the world.
Racism, fear, prejudice, and anger have threatened to destroy them, but some bonds can never be broken.
Moving from the horror of anti-semitism in Imperial Russia to the promise of a new life in America, The Juniper Tree is a tale of hope and restoration.
The Juniper Tree premiered at the Indy Fringe Festival in 2016, and was recently featured as part of The Ann Katz Festival of Books and Arts and Jewish Community Center of Indianapolis.
Written by Timothy A. Taylor, it is a moving and compelling story that delves into the complex emotions within family relationships.
Anger, resentment, bitterness and regret can destroy lives and rip families apart. Most long for restoration but few know where to begin. The Juniper Tree is a story to be experienced; filled with hope and inspiration for families to begin the healing process.
