Generation 9/11: So Far, So Close

Chris Wolfe
[email protected]'s Hall

It's been almost ten years since the World Trade Center was attacked on September 11th 2001, and the time that has passed affects each person differently. Chris Wolfe's solo performance tries to bring some semblance of unity to the great swathe of feelings and emotions felt across America. Wolfe inhabits the personae of a dozen or more characters, each seperate and unique, with only minimal props to help the audience identify them more easily in the short running time.

The show offers few answers but asks many questions, and outside of the reflections and memories of the characters, there are moments of philosophising on the nature of generations and how the future will regard the current days and the peoples born into them. A frank and intelligent piece performed with dignity and intelligence.
