Play Brings 9/11 To Life
Olson's mother, Judy, has worked in theater for over 40 years and directed the play. She said the play is sad, but it also has its charming and funny moments.
"People were funny, I mean we were all you know. Now when you remember people who've died that you know you remember the funny good stuff too," Judy Olson said.
One woman who's seen the play twice said it's important to remember the human side.
"It emphasized the individuality of each life lost, each person was an individual and they were greatly missed," audience member Sarah Kay said.
For Kirsten Olson, the play is a way to cope with the events of 9/11.
"Feels like I'm dong something valuable because I think the play brings it down to a real human level where instead of remembering the event, as the huge horrible thing that it was, you think about the people who were there that day," Olson said.
Monday's performance benefited the Firefighter's Museum and Memorial in Kingdom City. It marked the end of a four night run.
