Description

What is it about guns? Today’s American high school students have been raised at a time when school shootings have become common and suicide rates have drastically increased. The fight for gun control is a fight that students, teenagers and children have to fight. This devised play with music explores how schools have become scenes of violence and how that shared experience will define this young generation. Guns are efficient, quick and their results are irreversible.
