Plot:  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.

Saturday September 20 Dinner Show Tickets
In October 1998 a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming
was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence in the middle
of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised and battered
body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later
in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim
of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of
the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a
year and a half in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two
young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200
interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were
directly connected to the case, and others were citizens of Laramie, and the
breadth of their reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic
Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience
from these interviews and their own experiences. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is
a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity
can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
