After a lengthy absence from the stage, Aspie Works will return for the 2016 Rochester Fringe Festival – and this year’s entry will be The Guys!

Written by journalist Anne Nelson, this two-person drama is a meditation on grief after a harrowing tragedy that changed America and the world.  An editor is asked by a fire captain to help write eulogies for some of the men he lost in the World Trade Center attacks.  As they reflect on the firefighters who went on duty and never came home, they also have to deal with their own grief and struggles to understand the events of 9/11.

Label founder Justin Rielly will produce and direct The Guys, and will feature two of Rochester’s most respected actors, Louie Podlaski and Gretchen Woodworth, on stage as the captain Nick and editor Joan.

The Guys will be presented at the MuCCC (142 Atlantic Avenue) on Friday, September 16 at 7:00pm and Sunday, September 18 at 8:00pm; tickets will be $10 for both performances.
