Curated from Horovitz’s vast canon of shorts, Israel Horovitz One-Acts paints a rich coming-of-age portrait over the course of three plays and three different decades.
Set in late 1950’s Cambridge, ‘It’s Called the Sugar Plum’ is a dark comedy about two college students fighting grief, guilt and greed in the wake of a tragic accident. In ‘Beirut Rocks,’ tensions reach fever pitch as four American students await evacuation in the midst of the 2006 Hezbollah air raids. Complementing these two pieces is ‘The Bump,’ a brief encounter between two conflicted hearts in a U.S. passport office.
