Theater Benefit For 9/11 Fund

By on August 28, 2018

Robert Barwick of Wayne plays the fire captain and Claudia Budris of West Caldwell plays the writer who is helping him to gather his thoughts for the 9/11 eulogies.

Next week, Verona resident Bill O’Brien will be directing a staged reading of the September 11th elegy “The Guys”.

The play, written by Anne Nelson, centers around a New York City fire captain trying to come to terms with the staggering number of eulogies that he must deliver in the wake of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Critics have called the show, “A courageous and riveting… play that tackles the horror of September 11th with an intimacy that’s both unsettling and healing.”

The show will take place on Friday, September 7, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, September 9, at 3 p.m. at Studio Playhouse, which is located at 14 Alvin Place, off Valley Road near the Acme in Upper Montclair.

Proceeds of the reading go to support the 9/11 Fund and Studio Players, who themselves are recovering from major flood damage to their theatrical warehouse and who are very grateful for the continued donations and volunteerism from Montclair and the surrounding communities.

Tickets are available at a special benefit price of $20 and can be purchased online or by calling 973-744-9752.
