    TheDrillingCompany had selected its fall theme "Connections" long before September 11. And from November 3 18, TDC will explore — through an evening of short plays, art and musicman's search for a link to others and self, a topic most have considered in earnest since that historic date. TDC will present works by New York writer Brian Dykstra, whose "Forsaking All Others" opened recently to rave reviews in London, and was called "A dizzying free-fall both fascinating and sickening to watch," by the L.A. Times. Other NY writers include Peter Killy, a two-time Manhattan Theatre Club Playwrighting Finalist. The evening also features the work of Edward Manning, one of the most sought-after writers in Canada. Mr. Manning has won two Gemini Awards (Canadian Emmy) for acting, and has been nominated for a third as a writer. Among other notables are C. Denby Swanson, a Jerome Fellow in Playwriting, and Olivia Honegger, one of the evening's directors, who assistant-directed (with Marion McClinton), "Jitney" on B'Way. Broadway and Off-B'way veterans will be the cast, with Edwin Owens, who understudied Brian Dennehy in the 1999 B'Way revival of "Death of a Salesman," among them. The fundraising event for the "Connections" project was scheduled for September 16, 2001. In the wake of September 11, TDC donated the funds raised to the Red Cross World Trade Center relief effort. According to Hamilton Clancy, artistic director, "The art-producing community didn't know what to do in the days immediately following September 11. That single event forced all of us to reevaluate how we provide service. We knew it would be a struggle to get this show up if we donated the money, but at the same time, I knew if it was best for the community at large, it was good for our theatre company." TheDrillingCompany is a not-for-profit Off-Broadway theatre company which presented its inaugural work, "In The Car," in the fall of 1999, with the aid of a grant from Jack and Tammi Chrysler. The Company selects a theme, around which playwrights and artists of various disciplines are invited to create work.
