What’s On (Edmonton): Hole in the Sky – Script Salon

 

Hole in the Sky
by Reed McColm

            
Hole in the Sky is a drama about the people trapped inside the North Tower of the World Trade Center above the point of impact when the second plane attacked on 9/11/2001. In that tower, all stair exits were destroyed and no one above impact survived. The play covers their plight inside, while also flashing back to their lives prior to that day. The many characters are read by Julien Arnold, Davina Stewart, Braydon Dowler-Coltman and Michele Vance Hehir, and the reading is directed by Reed McColm.
 
REED McCOLM has worked in nearly every performing medium. He wrote for television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, Growing Pains, Wings, Sister Kate, Dear John, Just the Ten of Us and others, including unsold pilots and several made-for-television movies (such as Cab to Canada, starring Maureen O’Hara). An award-winning playwright, his work includes the dark musical Could You Leave the Door Open, biographical play Permit Me Voyage, comedies Holding Patterns, and The Mediation.  His first play was Together Again for the First Time, a domestic comedy/drama subtitled “A Family in Two Acts.” Reed produced and co-authored the 2008 screen adaptation, starring Julia Duffy and David Ogden Stiers. Two years later, Reed wrote and directed a warm-hearted stage sequel, Together Again for the Next Time. Both Together Again plays have been performed at Script Salon. Reed’s new comedy, The Wrong People Have Money, will debut at Shadow Theatre in April 2020. Reed was Artistic Director for Interplayers Theatre in Spokane, Washington, and has a Master’s Degree in Professional Writing from the University of Southern California.
