Professional Theater artists and members of the community will be sharing true stories about how guns have shaped their lives. This program of live storytelling, previously seen in New York at Dixon Place, has been described by audiences as powerful, soul stirring, deeply moving, surprising, hopeful and even humorous.

**THE ASSIGNMENT.
With Erick Betancourt and Karen Kandel. Directed by Emily Joy Weiner.

An English professor is shaken when a student’s personal essay describing an act of street violence from the shooter’s perspective reopens long buried wounds. This new play explores the long-term impact of gun violence from both sides of the gun barrel and the struggle to forgive.
