My First Sony-pictureMY FIRST SONY is based on an Israeli best-seller novel, written by Benny Barbash.

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 8pm

Wednesday, September 16, 2015 at 8pm

It is the story of the deterioration of an Israeli family, told by Yotam, an eleven year old child. Obsessed with documentation, he records everything in his children’s tape recorder, “My First Sony”. He follows the events and reports them accurately, a fact which emphasizes the comic aspect of painful developments in his life, such as his parents’ separation and the inevitable ending

“That night too I woke up and heard Mom and Dad arguing. Mom said to Dad that he was f-ing up her life with all his playing around, and his walking out on us and his moods, and she was fed up, fed up: and he answered back that it was hard for him too, and he felt stifled and stuck in a rut, and his time was running out and, he never succeeded in getting anything done; then she said that if he cried less over his wasted time he wouldn’t waste so much time; and he asked her not to be nasty”

Roy Horovitz’ MY FIRST SONY has become an international hit, touring and representing Israel in the last 19 years in U.S.A, Germany, Slovakia, South Africa, Egypt, The Netherlands, Czech Republic — enjoying rave international reviews:

“A beautiful and very well acted play… Not a dull moment. Horovitz is sensitive, natural and convincing. He successfully plays a child without falling into childishness, and gains sympathy without gushing ‘shmaltz’”
(the Daily Yediot Aharonot).

“Having toured My First Sony round the theater circuit for 15 years now, Horovitz has had plenty of time to nail the show, and this is one of those Fringe moments where you feel you’ve found a real bargain.”
(Prague Post)

These performances are part of the larger North American tour, which includes additional performances at the Vancouver Fringe, Toronto and Montreal.

Long Ago and Far Away by David Ives directed by HwaYoun Kang

A young, married, yuppie couple, about to move out of their NYC apartment, get swept up in a bizarre scenario filled with time travel and switched identities as they explore the nature of reality and their existence in the past, present, and future on a fateful winter evening.

Childhood by Thorton Wilder directed by Travis Frank

This provocative, sometimes chilling comedy, Wilder renders a child’s-eye view of the grown-up world, as a father, a mother, and their three children play a revealing game of make-believe in which their children pretend to be orphans. This play blurs the lines between perception and reality, artifice and innocence.

The Love Talker by Jamie Jordan directed by Rey Zane.

The Love Talker is an eerie and sensual play — set in an age when strange spirits walked the earth and magic was all around. The story is the follows the relationship between adolescence Gowdie and her older sister Bun. When Gowdie falls under the influence of the Love Talker, the two of them find themselves locked in a battle of love, jeasouly and magic. The Love Talker seems to have emanated from the darkest reaches of the Grimms’ fairy tales.

This is Our Youth
By Kenneth Lonergan directed by Analiese Guettinger and Sam McHale

July 10th, 11th, 12th

This is Our Youth is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood when many young people first go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers. Ideas and techniques far more sophisticated than their parents ever realize, and far less effectual then the characters themselves can possibly imagine.

 Past Curfew: A Festival of One Acts

July 17th, 18th, and 19th

Long Ago and Far Away by David Ives directed by HwaYoun Kang

A young, married, yuppie couple, about to move out of their NYC apartment, get swept up in a bizarre scenario filled with time travel and switched identities as they explore the nature of reality and their existence in the past, present, and future on a fateful winter evening.

Childhood by Thorton Wilder directed by Travis Frank

This provocative, sometimes chilling comedy, Wilder renders a child’s-eye view of the grown-up world, as a father, a mother, and their three children play a revealing game of make-believe in which their children pretend to be orphans. This play blurs the lines between perception and reality, artifice and innocence.

The Love Talker by Jamie Jordan directed by Rey Zane.

Gruesome Playground Injuries
By Rajiv Joseph directed by Jamie Kelley

July 24th, 25th, 26th

Gruesome Playground Injuries tells the atypical story of Kayleen and Doug during certain times in their ever-evolving lives. Interacting at the most peculiar of times in their respective lives, they embark on a journey in which they must fight a constant battle against the hardships of mental and physical pain, tragedy, and ultimately love.
