The Bravo television network will offer a new film from playwright Israel Horovitz on Sept. 11 to commemorate the first anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks.
Entitled "3 Weeks After Paradise," Horovitz's film is based on his monologue of the same name, which concerns the impact of the events of Sept. 11 on New York and his own family. "3 Weeks After Paradise" will premiere on Bravo at 7 PM with a repeat broadcast at 10 PM.
All proceeds from Horovitz's film will be donated to The 3 Weeks After Paradise Scholarship Fund. The Fund, which was established at the City University of New York, helps the family of World Trade Center victims with tuition costs at CUNY's Graduate Center. Those wishing to make a donation to the Fund should e-mail ThreeWeeksFund@aol.com.
In related news, Horovitz's new play, My Old Lady, is scheduled to begin previews at New York's Promenade Theatre on Sept. 12. Directed by David Esbjornson, the play stars Siân Phillips, Peter Friedman and Jan Maxwell. Horovitz has also written such plays as Park Your Car in Harvard Yard and Morning, Noon and Night.
