San Juan, Capistrano (PRWEB) February 6, 2005 -- The Orange Curtain
presents: The Guys by Anne Nelson. Less than two weeks after the
September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them,
an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of
Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack.
He's looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must
present at their memorial services. Nick and Joan spend a long
afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting
their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into
memorials of words. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the
possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for
the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through
the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the
appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of
common humanity. THE GUYS is based on a true story. "A
courageous and riveting…play that tackles the horror of September
11th with an intimacy that's both unsettling and healing."
—Christian Science Monitor.
