    “Windfall Jelly” is a dark and quirky play about love and apples and making the most of what you’ve got. It’s clear from the start that things aren’t right at home on the farm. The apples are down and the house needs repairs. Mom’s making jelly, while her son and his wife decide how to spend their anniversary. Should they go out for dinner? Or should he fix a hole in the roof? Will their differences tear them apart? Or will a sudden wind storm rekindle their love and bring them together forever? Well staged and performed. Not really a comedy, but definitely worth checking out. Expect loud thunder.
