Personal 9/11 accounts performed by survivors

World Trade Center survivors and rescue workers will share their personal stories in two performances next week at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center.

The “Performing Tribute” production features six volunteers of the Tribute WTC Visitor Center, which provides tours of the W.T.C. site and displays artifacts from 9/11.

The accounts include one from a former firefighter who participated in the search and rescue operation, one from a person who escaped the Twin Towers after the 1993 bombing and the 2001 attack, one from a resident who lived across from the tower on Liberty St., and two from women who helped with the recovery effort for the Salvation Army.

Donna Kaz, a Tribute Center volunteer as well as a theater writer and director, has molded the personal experiences into a 75-minute stage production.

The performances will be Oct. 20th and 21st beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a reception featuring the performers, followed by the production at 7:30 p.m. at the T-PAC in the Borough of Manhattan Community College, 199 Chambers St. Ticket prices range between $26 and $154 and can be purchased at tributewtc.org, 212-422-3520, ext. 125, or
jchiles@tributewtc.org.
