4 Male 1 Female

Six vibrant characters come to life in an artist's studio in lower Manhattan, each a witness to the events of September 11, 2001. The artist, who also narrates, finds his dreams are haunted by imaginary survivors and he is inspired by Picasso's masterpiece Guernica to weave these images into a commemorative portrait

Four monologues and one dualogue reveal the moving stories underlying each figure
