This brilliant collection of Horovitz’s newest one-act plays can be mixed and matched to form several “theme” evenings. For example, nine of these plays formed the highly-successful off-Broadway show “Israel Horovitz’s New Shorts”: The Bridal Dance, Affection In Time (The Prologue), The Fat Guy Gets The Girl, Beirut Rocks, The Audition Play, The Hotel Play, Cat-Lady, Inconsolable and The Race Play . 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.
Affection in Time was first presented January 3rd, 2007 by the Barefoot Theatre Co. at Theatre Row, West 42nd St, NYC, in an evening entitled Israel Horovitz’s New Shorts.
