The Guys

by Anne Nelson

This event has passed.

Nick, a fire captain, seeks the help of a journalist, Joan, to write eulogies for his “guys” – the eight men his company lost in the World Trade Center attack. As they talk, Joan’s questions elicit portraits of everyday heroes, and through Nick’s stories, she pens tributes celebrating each of these lives lost too soon.

ETC was the first theatre outside New York to receive the rights to produce this cathartic and touching memory play, and we are honored to present it again for a special weekend of performances in partnership with the Cincinnati Fire Museum to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 and honor those who serve our community today.

Run time: ~75 minutes with no intermission

Venue for this production: Cincinnati Fire Museum
