Theatre in the Grove Presents the Powerful 9/11 Drama THE GUYS
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. Hes 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 formsand the enduring bonds of common
humanity. THE GUYS is based on a true story.
The cast for THE GUYS star the real-life wife and
husband team of Dan Harry, who also directs, and Jodi Coffman.
