BWW Review: Epic Theatre Begins Fifth Season with Powerful THE GUYS
by Robert Barossi - Sep 19, 2016

Epic Theatre Company begins its fifth full-length season with an attempt to walk that fine line, presenting the Rhode Island premiere of Anne Nelson's play The Guys. A simple, straightforward story, Nelson's work offers us only two characters, two people who would be complete strangers if not for the events in New York City on that day. Joan is a New York City writer, and transplant from Oklahoma, who is at the center of the play, often breaking into monologues to talk to address the audience directly about the events of the day and how it impacted her and everyone else. Nick is a Fire Captain, one who lost a number of men in the towers during the attacks. He arrives at Joan's doorstep asking for a very specific form of help: he needs her to help him write the eulogies for the men who died while under his command. (more...)
