You are bound to find commonality and feel empathy in at least one
of the six plays presented in UNRESOLVED.  They touch on the
jumble of emotions displayed and/or suppressed in the aftermath of
9/11.  A stellar cast takes diversified, complex characters and lets
their personalities emerge with hopes and dreams, sorrow and
sadness, lamentations and promises.
          
In Ellipsis by Steven Fechter unspoken words and actions are
addressed as a survivor replays the last day with her loved one. 
Floating World by Laren Stover takes on the viewpoints of a victim,
as does Coda by Romulus Linney.  A father's grief in Rosen's Son
by Joe Pintauro and a wife's guilt in Bless Me, Father by Jeff Baron
aptly portray the trauma and life-changing effects of loss.  And
Cocooning by R. David Robinson offers perhaps the ultimate
solution.  
          
Far from being maudlin, UNRESOLVED is tinged with humor and
hope, allowing the resiliency of the human spirit to shine through in
spite of massive tragedy.  It is a tribute to us all as we struggle to
remember those that were lost on 9/11 and at the same time carry on
with our lives.
