Summit Theatre Group’s fourth offering this season takes a serious look at a moment from our past.
The Guys, by Ann Nelson, puts a writer struggling to respond to the tragic events of 9/11 with a fire captain facing the prospect of doing eulogies for the men he lost in the Twin Towers. Together, they work not only on the speeches, but also their own confusion and heartbreak at what their city has been through. A perfect show to see during the week of Sept. 11.
A collection will also be taken during the show to benefit the Lee’s Summit Fire Department.
The Guys is being produced in cooperation with the Lee’s Summit Fire Department, which is supplying some equipment and also expertise. Donations will be taken at each performance for the department so they can help pay for their Honor Guard to go to the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Ceremony this fall.
Performances are Sept. 11-14 at 8 p.m. and Sept. 15 at 2:30 p.m. in the Metropolitan Community College’s Longview campus Cultural Arts Center.
