RECENT TRAGIC EVENTS

Recent Tragic Events by Craig Wright was BAE Theatre's fall 2016 production at Atwater Playhouse.

It is the evening of September 12, 2001 in the Minneapolis apartment of Waverly Wilson, who in an attempt to retain some normalcy despite the overwhelming news coverage of the 9/11 attacks, prepares for a blind date with Andrew. The date is quickly derailed by Waverly's concern that she still has not heard from her twin sister, Wendy, a student in New York City. The evening is further complicated by visits from Waverly's eccentric neighbor, Ron, his quiet girlfriend, Nancy, and an especially surprising pop-in from her great aunt--renowned novelist Joyce Carol Oates.
