SYNOPSIS: And the Giants Fell examines the events leading up to the September 11th tragedy and our reaction to the events. Through four sections, we examine the thoughts and reactions of the participants and victims of the historic event. In the first section, And the Giants Fell, we examine two families and how their lives were touched by this tragic event. In the second section, Reason, we examine how this event affected a woman who has lost her spouse. In the third section, Broken, the ten commandments are used as a template to show how this unexpected tragedy deprived many of its victims the chance of repentance. The final section, From Fear to Hope, shows how this event brought four individuals from the darkness of fear to the light of hope.

"Since the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the Twin Towers was just this past September, I felt it important to do this play. What I loved about this play is that it showed how the event affected not only Americans, but the families of the men who hijacked the planes. Many of the characters in this play resonated with the adults that watched it. We took 3rd at the Subsection contest but received a first place rating from one of the 3 judges. We also scored excellent ratings for educational value and technical element (for our set). Overall, this is a very powerful play about an event that should be remembered."

"The emotional perspective inspired by Todd that "we" and "them" could share feelings and hopes, is adeptly presented in And the Giants Fell."
