About this show

Feeling disconnected in the tragic aftermath of 9/11, Rik Reppe shut down his thriving management consulting business to try to reconnect with what he lost that day. He threw his clothes, sleeping bag, and tent into his truck and left his home. He began what would become an eight-week journey across America to see the Pentagon, the World Trade Center, and a lonely field outside of Shanksville, PA. On the way, he spoke with hundreds of people asking what it means to be an American. This quest is the basis for the play, Staggering Toward America. Under Jack Rowe's direction, Reppe's storytelling comes alive with portrayals of everyday people and their selfless behavior and courageous acts as they too struggle to find meaning in post-9/11 America.
