Click here to read more about this play, first performed at TVS in October 2008. In a fun alumni twist, some members of the current cast are in contact with the alum who played their corresponding role in the first performance, and they are able to share insights and thoughts on being part of such a challenging and emotional play.
Student designers have been working on this production since June, planning lighting, sound, set design, projections, costumes, and more. The cast of 21 students began work in mid-August. Each cast and crew member has chosen someone who died in the attacks on 9/11 to keep in mind and heart as they go through the rehearsal process, and they are dedicating their work on the show to their memory. These dedications will be shared with audience members at the performances.
Please note: Due to the intense subject matter, the play is not recommended for people under the age of 13 or anyone who may be greatly disturbed by the events of 9/11.
