First performed in a hit off-off-Broadway production starring Sigourney Weaver and Bill Murray, The Guys is a timeless drama about the connections we make in times of tragedy.
Paralyzed by grief, Nick, a fire captain, seeks out the help of a writer to compose eulogies for the men he lost onSeptember 11th. Joan, an editor by trade, draws Nick out about “the guys,” revealing vivid personalities and the meaning that lies beneath the surface of seemingly unremarkable people.
“The Guys is not an ordinary night in the theater….What comes through is that humanity can be exalted by expression as well as the other way around.”
— The New York Times
“[The Guys] goes beyond theater. It’s not just entertainment. It [is] a real, moving document.”
— Robert Altman
