Do you remember? The Guys is one of those plays that some folks just won't be able to handle. After all, it deals with a subject — the tragic death of six firefighters at the World Trade Center on 9/11 — that many still grieve over. But for those who can brave this play about a fire captain dealing with his grief over the loss of his comrades, you will be rewarded with what the Chicago Tribune called "a jewel of a play."

More than a movie. If you're a movie lover, the title of this one may be a bit familiar. Shortly after The Guys made its theatrical debut, a film adaptation, starring Sigourney Weaver and Anthony LaPaglia, hit the big screens. And Charleston resident Bill Murray starred in the original Off-Broadway production.

The name game. Mark Mixson and company at the Threshold Repertory Theatre are relatively new to Charleston. If Threshold can pull off a gut-wrenching drama like The Guys, they'll be one their way to making a name for themselves in a city with no shortage of talented troupes.
