WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Bull Family Orchestra presents The 29 Questions Project. The evening's four one-acts include "29 Questions" by Hillary Rollins (directed by Leslie Kincaid Burby), and three shorter companion plays -- "Message from the Driver" by Katie Bull (directed by Kathryn Alexander), "Arm" (written and directed by Katie Bull), and "Hand" (written and directed by Katie Bull). In the 29 Questions Project a series of seemingly unconnected events in the past and present are viewed through the prism of 9/11, giving these moments new, hidden and possibly dangerous meanings. In the central one-act, "29 Questions," verbatim text from a playful Internet question game between two female friends becomes hauntingly portentous when one of the women loses her life on her first day as a temp in the South Tower. In the companion plays a Pakistani taxi driver's off-hand comment becomes an unsettling warning; two teenagers marching in opposite directions don't realize their lives intersect, and an American college-age tourist getting lost in the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem has cryptic implications. DINNER/SHOW OPTION FOR ONLY $10 MORE! Those with tickets for the preshow and prefixe meal should arrive by 6pm. Showtime is at 7pm. No meals are served during the show. Anyone arriving after 6pm risks getting their meal after the show. Pre-fixe dinner includes soup or salad + fish, chicken or pasta + coffee or tea. There is a post-show meal discount of 10% with ticket stub. There are no performances in August or on September 6. Appropriate for audiences 12 and above. "Startlingly resonant... finely crafted, smartly directed, compellingly performed." Nytheatre.com "Moving and thoughtful." NY Press "A fascinating, disturbing and highly compelling evening of theater." Show Business "A fascinating and meritorious event... The location is both apt and significant. The proximity to Ground Zero intensifies the play's considerable impact." The Irish Echo
