This darkly comic play explores how siblings’ lives are intertwined, what we owe to the people who know and love us best and, how family members’ needs and desires may push the boundaries of what we are expected to do for others.

THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY
Written and Directed by Israel Horovitz
Love in the time of terrorism is the theme of Israel Horovitz’s newest play THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY, which follows three couples during 72 hours, before and after a rock concert in Paris. THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY is the final play in Horovitz’s Paris trilogy, which also includes his internationally-acclaimed MY OLD LADY, and this year’s off-Broadway hit OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES, which starred Estelle Parsons and Judith Ivey and played to packed houses at NYC’s legendary Cherry Lane Theatre.
