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. 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 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.

Performance dates for this special one weekend 
event are Friday and Saturday, September 9 and 10 
at 8:00pm, Sunday, September 11 at 2:30pm.
