1+1 by Eric Bogosian

1+1 is well acted, thought-provoking and uncompromisingly dark." - Jay Lustig, NJ Arts

"1+1, a lustrous work of art, is a cautionary tale that gracefully exhibits the gravity of life and the power of conscience." - Lianna Albrizio, BroadwayWorld

Courtesy of acclaimed playwright Eric Bogosian, Black Box PAC is proud to produce an encore run of the new play 1+1, after a successful workshop production in November/December 2021.


This riveting new three-hander from the acclaimed playwright/actor Eric Bogosian (Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll; Talk Radio; Suburbia, etc.) explores how a modern woman can still rise and fall at whim of the men in her life. In 1+1, an unsuspecting aspiring actress in Los Angeles makes a seemingly innocent choice that lures her into the lucrative world of internet porn, and her fate seems caught between the two men who couldn't seem more opposite yet might have more in common than first meets the eye...
