From Harlem To The Bronx at Manhattan Theatre Source

Proactive Artists presents From Harlem To The Bronx: Two Plays by Israel Horovitz, opening at Manhattan Theatre Source on 22 Mar 2008, following previews from 19 Mar and running through to 29 Mar 2008.

The two plays are:

The Indian Wants The Bronx: Two street punks come across an East Indian man waiting at a bus stop in New York City. The two, intrigued and threatened by the foreigner on their turf, begin to tease the man. Before long, their taunts turns vicious and eventually escalates into violence.

Rats: a city rat with control over the fertile Harlem sewers must deal with a country rat from Greenwich, CT, who's looking for a piece of the pie. When a defenseless, squawling human infant suddenly appears, a power struggle erupts between the two rats, with one anxious to bite her and the other determined to protect her.

Directed by Doug Schneider, From Harlem To The Bronx features Himad Beg, Roy Devito, Josh Farhadi, Delanie Shawn Murray, Doug Schneider and Monisha Shiva.

The creative team features sets by Stanley Czarnecki and Diane Corrado, lighting by Kevin Ploth and sound by James Surdi and Demetri Vassiliou.
