In an abandoned building overlooking Ground Zero, a woman pieces together a story that gives her grief meaning, only to have it demolished by the man who brought her there. Did they really just meet in a bar? Did she really lose someone in the Towers? Competing narratives abound in the US premiere of a play by award-winning writer/director Joshua Crone that had audiences talking in London and Berlin. A darkly comic look at the aftermath of 9/11, with asides on the geopolitical ramifications of bad sex, the art of tactical bed-making and the occult significance of sharing a hairbrush.

"Dark, creepy, yet insanely interesting."
- Tony Capobianco, AXS
