Performances Sept 10 & 11, 2016
William Alderson, Stelio Savante and the River Street Theater Company present 110 Stories - a play By Sarah Tuft at the William Alderson Acting Studio.
110 STORIES weaves together first-person accounts of September 11th into a play that captures how 9/11 felt to those who lived it. Based on interviews that playwright Sarah Tuft conducted as a 9/11 volunteer, the play takes us back to when 9/11 was unimaginable, capturing the shock and horror of the day, as well as the grief, compassion and resilience of New York in its aftermath. 110 STORIES is neither sensationalized nor politicized. Instead, it restores the humanity to this event, sharing it as a series of moments we can all relate to.
