Liz Zimmerman’s “20 Years of 9-11: Memories of a Witness”
Imagine you are an 18-year-old college freshman, resident of New York City for one week. On your way to class, you are swept into the chaos of the World Trade Center’s twin tower attack. For Liz Zimmerman, this nightmare was a reality.
Join us for 20 Years of 9-11: Memories of a Witness on Saturday, September 11 at 9 am at Cherry Street Pier. This one-person performance examines the concept of memory: where it lives, what it does to us, and what it means. Join Zimmerman as she shares what it is like to be a witness to the horrible day that changed the world.
PLEASE NOTE: This show is not for young children as it contains disturbing themes of violence. This show is recommended for those 13 years and older with parental guidance.
This performance is part of the annual Philadelphia Fringe Festival hosted by Fringe Arts. The event is free and open to the public. Cherry Street Pier is open rain or shine.
