My First Sony
Sunday, February 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ESTFree
A one-man play featuring Israeli actor-director Roy Horovitz
Classrooms Without Borders in partnership with Rodef Shalom Congregation present My First Sony, an award-winning monodrama, which has toured Israel and the globe to great acclaim and rave reviews for more than 20 years. Based on Benny Barbash’s bestseller by the same name, the play tells the story of Yotam, an eleven-year-old child, who becomes obsessed with documenting his life after receiving a children’s tape recorder, his “First Sony.” Yotam records events involving his family, and we hear their voices, their struggles and heartbreak. He presents his findings with naïve honesty and humor, which help to soften the painful coming-of-age played so expertly.

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
Acclaim for My First Sony:
” 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, Israel)
“A pleasant surprise. It is beautifully crafted and performed” (Judy Unwin, Global T.V., Canada)
“A document of real emotion. Affecting production, performed with sensitivity by Roy Horovitz… ‘MY FIRST SONY’ is not a soap opera. The story feels genuine, Yotam is every 11-year-old you’ve ever met and the story-teller avoid milking his story for cheap emotions and tears. There will be tears but they will be very real” (Colin Maclean, EdmontonSun)
