Congratulations to Amy S. Green on the 20th Anniversary Revival of WHAT HAPPENED

Amy S. Green, Nora’s Playhouse’s Associate Artistic Director, created What Happened: The September 11th Testimony Project with her students at John Jay College in the months after 9/11. In October, November, and December of 2001, students fanned out across NYC to collect first-person accounts of New Yorkers’ experiences on September 11th. The play, comprised of excerpts from dozens of interviews, premiered at John Jay in April 2002.

On September 14, 2021, under the direction of Green, a new generation of John Jay College students, staff, faculty, and/or alumni read their stories in a virtual production as they looked back 20 years.

All of us at Nora’s want to congratulate Amy on this beautiful and moving production! We are thrilled that she was able to revisit What Happened with a new generation of participants on this important 20th anniversary and hope that all of you will watch.

After you’ve watched the play (embedded above), please contribute to their interactive reflection and brainstorm. Read what others have shared, add your own thoughts, and check out resources related to the play.

Green joined Nora’s Playhouse in 2014 and has been on the John Jay College faculty since 1995 where she is Associate Professor of Applied Theatre and Interdisciplinary Studies. She is a director, actor, playwright, and dramaturg. She holds a Kennedy Center Gold Medallion for Lifetime Contribution to the Arts and is the author of The Revisionist Stage: American Directors Reinvent the Classics (Cambridge University Press). She also directed Nora’s critically acclaimed production of Catherine Filloux’s whatdoesfreemean? at The Tank (NYC) in 2018.
