The Mourning After: A Play Reading and Discussion
On the Eve of the 18th Anniversary of 9/11, the BMCC Theatre Department presents The Mourning After, a one-act play written and directed by Professor Alvin Eng featuring Dominick Allen and Simone Zalusky.
After the play reading, there will be a discussion and open mic: 9/11 themed poems and reflections 2–3 minutes in length are welcomed!
RSVP to Professor Alvin Eng at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mourning After was written on 9/11/03 aboard the A train as part of the “A Train Plays” 24-hour play festival. The play explores the then two-year aftermath of 9/11 through the prisms of class and perception as two strangers meet aboard a Queens-bound A-train. How far have we come as a country since then? Where do we need to go from here?
