This brilliant collection of Horovitz's newest one-act plays can be mixed and matched to form several "theme" evenings.

Additionally, six of these plays were joined to create an evening called "6 Hotels": Fiddleheads and Lovers, Speaking of Tushy, Beirut Rocks, (intermission), The Audition Play, The Hotel Play, 2nd Violin. Recently, an off-Broadway show was created by Barefoot Theatre Company entitled "The Middle-East (in pieces)", comprised of A Mother's Love*, Security*, Beirut Rocks, and What Strong Fences Make*. (*also available from Samuel French, Inc.)

Plays include: Bridal Dance, Fiddleheads and Lovers, Affection in Time, The Fat Guy Gets the Girl, Beirut Rocks, The Audition Play, The Hotel Play, Cat Lady, Inconsolable, Speaking of Tushy, 2nd Violin, The Race Play.

REVIEWS 

"Watching these...new one-acts by one of the American theatre's most respected contemporary playwrights is like looking at Picasso's rough sketches. We feel privileged to peer over the shoulder of an innovative thinker as he flexes his creative muscles and grapples with various themes and ideas..." - Backstage, Read More 

Israel Horovitz's New Shorts premiered at Theatre Row in New York City in a production by The Barefoot Theatre Company in January of 2007 under the direction of Michael LoPorto and Israel Horovitz.
