MTC asks Uhry to pen ‘Apples’

Org commissions writer for adaptation

Manhattan Theater Club has commissioned Alfred Uhry (“Driving Miss Daisy”) to pen a stage adaptation of Marie Brenner’s memoir “Apples and Orange.”

The autobiographical tale centers on Brenner’s relationship with her brother, as clashing politics and lifestyles must be reconciled after a medical crisis brings the siblings together after years apart.

MTC a.d. Lynne Meadow plans to direct the show, for which no completion timeline has been set. Uhry, who picked up a 1997 Tony for “The Last Night of Ballyhoo,” wrote the book for tuner “Lovemusik,” which MTC produced in 2007.
