SPOT ON ISRAELI THEATRE: MY FIRST SONY

14-09-14  Theater De Doelenzaal, Amsterdam

Yotam, an eleven year old child, obsessed with documentation, 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…An award-winning monodrama by Benny Barbash, performed by Roy Horowitz, which has toured Israel and abroad (Germany, U.S.A., Canada, Egypt…) to great acclaim for more than 13 years now, and enjoyed rave reviews: “It is clear that Horovitz is a consummate actor- talented and exciting… Although the story sounds sad, the play is both touching and funny” (the Daily Davar) “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).
