Synopsis

"I have always been fascinated by guns. Their sleekness, their shinyness, the elegance of their design. And guns know who they are. They do not experience existential doubt. Whatever happens the gun is still a gun".

50 guns. 50 deaths. But some are too painful to re-visit. This moving, one-woman play explores America's gun laws, placing the control and action of the gun firmly in the hands of the user.

Editor's Note: This is a ten-minute play.
