Natural Shocks by Lauren Gunderson
A National Campaign of Theater Activism Against Gun Violence
The Fern Shakespeare Company at The Slate Theater is participating in a National Campaign of Theater Activism Against Gun Violence led by playwright Lauren Gunderson by staging a reading of her new play Natural Shocks.
On April 20, participating theaters and artists across the nation will be doing readings of her new one-woman play NATURAL SHOCKS royalty-free. That specific date marks the 19th anniversary of Columbine and the day of the National School Walkout.
NATURAL SHOCKS is a new, unpublished play by Lauren Gunderson. Based on Hamlet’s “To be or not to be,” NATURAL SHOCKS is a 65-minute, one-woman tour-de-force play that bursts to life when we meet a woman waiting out an imminent tornado in her basement. She overflows with quirks, stories, and a final secret that puts the reality of guns in American in your very lap. The play is part confessional, part stand up, and part reckoning.
ALL PROCEEDS from The Fern Shakespeare Company's reading will go to Everytown for Gun Safety & The Northwest Network of Bi, Trans, Lesbian, and Gay Survivors of Abuse.
Everytown for Gun Safety Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. Website: everytown.org
The Northwest Network of Bi, Trans, Lesbian, and Gay Survivors of AbuseThe NW Network increases their communities’ ability to support the self-determination and safety of bisexual, transgender, lesbian and gay survivors of abuse through education, organizing and advocacy.
