Occupation: Dragonslayer is the heartwarming, tuneful and totally engaging story of an extraordinary Everyman, his lethal nemesis, and the ordinary people caught up, each in their own unique way, by what happened on that "sky-of-blue September day."
Christmas Eve, 2002, a year and a season after 9/11. The doomed Tower Diner at Ground Zero in lower Manhattan. The loyal staff and eccentric regulars gather to raise one final toast before the wrecking ball strikes. Enter a mysterious stranger, who seems to be a firefighter with no memory of who he is, but a preternatural ability to decipher the secrets of those he encounters. With a fierce sense of purpose he battles the real estate profiteer cashing in on the tragedy, but in so doing uncovers the profound, sad secret of his own identity, paradoxically restoring hope to all the lonely strangers he encounters.
This moving and entertaining musical was first presented a year after 9/11. A cast of 16 fresh and talented performers ranging in age from 6 to 60 perform the melodious, challenging score by Bryan Williams, winner of New York Innovative Theatre Awards for Outstanding Original Music and Outstanding Original Script for "That Lady from Maxim's."
