SORRY - A SOMEWHAT FICTIONALIZED BUT COMPLETELY PLAUSIBLE ACCOUNT OF THE TYLER CLEMENTI TRAGEDY IN TWO SYMPHONIC MOVEMENTS
Written by Steven Fisher and Hector Berlioz
This stunning new fantasia incorporates the plot and music of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique as a counterpoint to the story of a confused young man who plans to end his life on the GW bridge. Former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey makes a spectral appearance on the bridge as a guardian angel of sorts who ends up hijacking the young man's story. This amazing new play tackles such diverse topics as unfulfilled teenage lust, idyllic French philosophy, tea room sex, parental psychological abuse, bridge engineering theory, and political public outings and wraps them all up in a breathlessly paced tale that is equal parts laughter and tears.
