Emma Horwitz Playwriting MFA ‘20 featured in The New York Times' "Four Theater Artists to Watch This Fall"
An excerpt from the article:
The playwright Emma Horwitz has lived in New York most of her life. The scent of the city is the scent of her memories — or the reek, depending.
“To this day, when it becomes summer and I smell a stinking garbage truck, I think of my childhood,” Horwitz, 31, said. “I think immediately of being 7 years old.”
Over coffee one August morning at Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan, Horwitz was talking about her comedy “Mary Gets Hers,” whose orphaned title character is 7 when the play begins, and is comforted by the memory of her parents’ smell.
