About the Show

“The Gun Show (Can we talk about this?)” is a thoughtful one-man play excavating the playwright’s own complicated relationship to gun culture. While proponents on both sides talk past each other, “The Gun Show (Can we talk about this?)” explores the many nuanced considerations in that narrative dominated by political sound bytes and simple solutions.

Playwright EM Lewis shares five personal stories about her own varied experiences with guns, told by a single actor. The writer hopes that the power of personal storytelling can unite people of differing experiences, backgrounds and opinions.
