The Truth is in the Ruins
“Blanket of Dust,” currently premiering in NYC is the quintessential play for members of the 9/11 Truth Community. I was simply blown away. The quality and acting are top notch. It speaks directly and forcefully without hesitation or apology of the painful truths, and the personal consequences and dilemmas of facing them. Those in the 9/11 Truth Community will see and feel themselves so well on the stage that the line between art and life blurs. This play is a breakthrough moment in theater for the 9/11 Truth movement. It must be experienced to know how excellent and powerful it is. Support this amazing groundbreaking play, and encourage people you know to experience it.World Premiere Of “A Blanket Of Dust”

Struggling with facts that the government, the media, her family and her countrymen deny, she finally confronts them all in a harrowing act of sacrificial tragedy.

On the morning of 9/11, Diana Crane, the daughter of a ranking US Senator, gets a farewell phone call from her husband trapped in Tower 1, just before it collapses. She rushes in a panic to New York City to witness the solitary collapse of Building 7, never hit by an airplane. She is tortured by the evidence that all 3 buildings seemed to collapse identically, with their remains suggesting they were purposely demolished. Follow Diana as she pursues the most powerful people in Washington to seek justice for her husband’s death, only to learn that the government for the people, by the people…may not actually be for the people.
