About Staged Reading: 110 Stories

From the first crash at the Towers to a last goodbye at Ground Zero, 110 STORIES takes us through 9/11 as told by those who were there. Based on interviews, this docu-play weaves together stories not shown on the news, from people we can relate to… a photojournalist, mother, ironworker, nurse, chiropractor and a homeless man who saved lives that day too. Their unflinching, freaked-out and sometimes funny accounts take us back to when 9/11 was unimaginable, capturing the shock and horror of the day as well as the resilience of New York City in its aftermath. 110 STORIES memorializes September 11th without politics or hyperbole. Instead, it restores the human side to history, reminding us of our capacity for compassion.
