First Look at Bikeman: A 9/11 Play
Where were you on the day that changed America? While many were once asked “Where were you when JFK was assassinated?”, the question of today’s modern century has come to be “Where were you on 9/11?” Bikeman: A 9/11 play, tells the story of Tom, an award-winning writer and producer of CBS Evening news as he ventures downtown on the day that not only changed New York but America. Tom is standing outside his home in the village when the first plane hits the North Tower. He proceeds to head downtown on his bike into the shadows of the burning buildings attempting to grasp fully what the nation is dealing with. As the South Tower falls, Tom will not only battle for survival but a full understanding of what has happened as it not only changes New York and the world, but his life forever. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you a first look at the new Off-Broadway production Bikeman: A 9/11 Play!
