New York — Actress Haley Rawson, who graduated from Warwick Valley High School in 2006, will appear in a new play, “Dust,” about six abandoned children living in an empty lower Manhattan courthouse following the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers on Sept. 11, 2001. Rawson, the daughter of Warwick’s MCC Actor Training School Director Donna Haley, is a graduate of the Acting Program at Fordham University, Lincoln Center. She is also a founding member of Tenement Street Workshop, a diverse group of twenty-something actors, writers, musicians, designers and directors. The not-for-profit organization has been producing plays, film festivals and music events in New York, Los Angeles and Paris. In Haley’s new play, “Dust,” the abandoned children have lost pieces of their memories and must navigate their way through the rubble to figure out why the dust is there and decipher their histories. “The play flows with a sense of urgency and clipping dialogue, much inspired by beat poetry,” said Rawson. “And with the tenth anniversary of 9-11 upon us, we’ve been invited to produce it at the Incubator Arts Project. I think the piece is particularly relevant this year, given the attention our country is paying to the anniversary of those attacks.” The Incubator Arts Project is located in Manhattan’s East Village at 131 E. 10th Street. The play opens Thursday night, Sept. 15. The last performance is Saturday, Sept. 24. “I would love to have the support of some Warwickians down here when the production begins,” said Rawson.
