The Story of Falling Don–performance November 7

Coming to a theater near you (assuming you live on the Upper West Side)!

I'm sitting by the window that faced the towers on 9/11

That’s me, sitting by the window that faced the towers on 9/11. The picture is inset, but it was the view we had out of the office window.

My play THE STORY OF FALLING DON will be performed at OSA (Our Saviour’s Atonement) Lutheran Church on SATURDAY, November 7, beginning at 7 PM. You might wish to get there at 6 to see the closing night of the OSA’s Forgiveness event, which features an installation of paintings and sculpture on the theme of Forgiveness. The church is located at 178 Seaman Avenue (Broadway and 189th Street). Their website is here.

From my press release:

THE STORY OF FALLING DON is the true story of Mr. Kinch’s first day on a new job in the Wall Street district, which happened to put him in his new office at 9 AM on 9/11/2001. The office he worked in faced the Twin Towers, and gave him an unintended front-row seat on the attacks on the World Trade Center’s twin towers. THE STORY OF FALLING DON is a meditation on the people who died that day and those who die every day in acts of war or terrorism. As a playwright, Mr. Kinch tries to explore the question of forgiveness in a Christian context.

THE STORY OF FALLING DON was originally produced in 2002 as part of the Theater For the New City Lower East Side festival. It has been updated with the passing of time. Mr. Kinch’s body of work includes several one-person shows. His work has been toured in the US and Europe, and a reading of one of his plays was broadcast nationally on DEMOCRACY NOW!


As far as I know, there’s no admission charge (will update if I know something different). The last time I checked, the play clocks in at 30-35 minutes. So come on by. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… mostly you’ll cry.
