Arts Garage debuts the World Premiere of “Gloucester Blue” by Israel Horovitz
Lou Tyrrell, Artistic Director of Theatre at Arts Garage, is thrilled to announce that famed playwright Israel Horovitz’s latest work, “Gloucester Blue”, will make its world premiere at the Delray Beach venue on January 25, 2013. Master story-teller Israel Horovitz continues his “Gloucester Series” of plays, using the intimate locale of Gloucester, MA, to tell epic stories of sex, murder, and intrigue.
Horovitz will be in South Florida during the month of January collaborating with Tyrrell on the production. “Israel Horovitz is one of our finest American playwrights living today,” said Tyrrell. “His understanding of what drives human behavior is original, unique, and completely theatrical. He is an artistic treasure, and to produce a world premiere of one of his plays at Arts Garage is a thrill and an honor. “Gloucester Blue” is an example of American playwriting at its best.”
Gloucester Blue is a dark and wicked comedy, and refers to a color choice for the walls of a restored harbor-front fish factory cum gentrified residence. But, no amount of renovation can gloss over the illicit secret motivations and unexpected connections of these characters, when the working-class world of two house painters collides with the privileged-class owners of this storied property. “When the best in us gives way to the worst in us, misadventure is the best adventure of all, and great theatre is afoot,” explained Tyrrell. “Never have our darkest impulses and deepest misbehavior been so much fun! Horovitz has written more than 70 produced plays, many of which have been translated and performed in more than 30 languages world-wide. His screenplay for the 1982 film, Author! Author!, starring Al Pacino is a largely autobiographical account of a playwright dealing with the stress of having his play produced on Broadway while he tries to raise a large family. Among Horovitz’s best known plays are “Line“, “Park your Car in Harvard Yard”, “The Primary English Class“, “The Widow’s Blind Date”, “What Strong Fences Make“, and “The Indian Wants the Bronx“.
“Gloucester Blue” plays January 25, 2013 through February 17, 2013 with performances Wed-Fri: 7:30 p.m., Sat: 2:00 p.m. Sun: 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $30-$40 in advance, $5 more at the door. Please visit www.artsgarage.org or call 561-450-6357 for more information.
