A highly esteemed cast of celebrities will perform Sarah Tuft’s play ‘110 Stories’ this coming 9/11 as a love letter to NY to benefit a related charity.
To commemorate the Tenth Anniversary of 9/11, artists including Susan Sarandon, James Gandolfini, Matt Dillon, Edie Falco, Sam Shepard, Patricia Clarkson, Kathleen Turner, Angela Bassett, John Turturro, Andre Braugher, Josh Lucas, John Hawkes, Michael Shannon, Stelio Savante, Michael Stuhlbarg, Aasif Mandvi and Daniel Sunjata will share first hand accounts of the tragedy.
“110 Stories” has been performed annually on Sept 11th at The Public Theater (2004), The Geffen Playhouse (2010), The Vineyard Theatre (2003), as part of “Brave New World” at Town Hall (2002) and at The Grove Street Theater (2001). Proceeds have gone to The Leary Firefighters Foundation, LA Red Cross for Haiti Relief, New York Children’s Foundation and The Salvation Army.
Tuft’s play weaves first-person accounts – selected from hundreds collected right after September 11th – into a journey that recalls our wounds as well as works towards healing them. It’s the human side of history, without politics and agenda, giving voice to those who experienced 9/11 directly… a firefighter, homeless couple, cop, iron-worker, massage therapist, chaplain, K9 handler, a mother, an elderly bulldog, a South American photojournalist. Together, these accounts shine a light into the human spirit – revealing hope, humor and compassion in the midst of tragedy.
Venue and ticket information to be announced. All performers will appear schedule permitting.
