‘That Day In September’ – Sept. 10 at First UMC in Lancaster

Countless heroes emerged from the chaos of Sept. 11, and by selflessly
sharing his story, Van Why must be counted among their number.”

— Los Angeles Times
“The ground-level experience of one frightened man. And we’re right there with him.”
— The Washington Post
Creative Works of Lancaster will be presenting That Day in September, a one-man show written by Lancaster playwright Artie Van Why about his experience being present at the World Trade Center on 9/11. The production will feature Lancaster actor Brian Martin, who has appeared previously in Creative Works productions Yule Laugh andArms and the Man.
That Day in September has been produced in New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. and was received well when performed at the Fulton Theatre on the fifth anniversary of 9/11.
Of his play, Van Why writes, “In the long run, the most important thing for me is to have the story told; to serve as a witness to that day in our history and a tribute to all those who died. ”
