By all accounts it was a beautiful day.

This is a play about perspective; a story of 9/11 but more a story of spirit and survival; and the way we, as individuals, deal with life when an unexpected horror is thrown at us.

Follow individuals as they face a day that changed their lives. A firefighter, a fashion designer, lawyers, secretaries and a poet tell what happened on a day that started as a very beautiful late Summer/early Fall day.

A Beautiful Day: 20 Years Later gives us an opportunity to understand the events of 9/11, see the horror, witness the healing and the pain, and see how humour and beauty can come out of tragedy
