5/11 The Guys at Firehouse
Auditions for “The Guys” with the Firehouse Theater Company, a Regional Premiere

written by Anne Nelson and directed by Don DeVeux.

Processing grief is never easy. When someone we are close to dies, it takes time to walk through the grieving process. When it’s a large group, say a family, it becomes exponentially harder. Now imagine a Fire Captain during the weeks following 9/11. Nick is the Captain of a firehouse in NYC, one of the first responders to the events of 9/11. Now, he is responsible for writing the eulogies for the 10 men in his company who were lost when the towers collapsed, but he can’t seem to find the words. His solution is to hire a writer who can somehow put into words the life of these men; to communicate the essence of a life spent “running in when others run out”.

“The Guys” is set just after 9/11, but it is not a story about that tragedy. “The Guys” is a story about dealing with events too large to comprehend, about the need we have for others to help us through those times, and, mostly, about the people who lay down their lives on a daily basis for those they have never met.
