* THE ASSIGNMENT (working title). A staged reading of a new play by Camilo Almonacid and Houses on the Moon Theater Company.
With Erick Betancourt and Karen Kandel. Directed by Emily 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.
**gUN COUNTRY Storytelling Program: true stories from people whose lives have been touched by guns.
Stories by Brenda Currin, Ian Eaton, Cristina Hernandez, Amir Khafagy, Benja Kay Thomas, Jenna Worsham. With Dashiell Eaves and Emily Weiner.
Curated by Jeffrey Solomon. Live music by Juancho Herrera
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.
