Sarandon & Robbins Relive 11 Sep in Europe???
Date: 31 May 2002
Another 11 September play may be heading our way - via Ireland. Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon and her partner Tim Robbins plan to bring the off-Broadway hit The Guys to Dublin some time this summer. Based on first-time playwright Anne Nelson's own experience following the terrorist attacks, The Guys consists of a dialogue between a New York City fire captain, who lost many colleagues on the day, and an editor who helps him write the eulogies. The Guys was workshopped by New York's Bat Theatre Company last December and has starred a rotating cast of screen celebrities, continuing currently Stateside with Tom Wopat and Amy Irving. One of New York's hottest tickets, The Guys is performed in a tiny 80-seat venue, where a proportion of tickets are held back each night for emergency workers from the disaster. Sarandon and Robbins appeared together last month for four performances only and plan to star again if it transfers as hoped. Meanwhile, the script of The Guys will be published later this summer in the US and a film version is also in the works. So far, two other post-11 September plays by American writers have premiered in London - Christopher Shinn's Where Do We Live at the Royal Court Upstairs and, at the Young Vic, Tony Kushner's Homebody/Kabul, ironically written before that fateful day.
