#ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence

Monday, December 14 | 6PM - 9PM

Facebook LIVE


 

Alumni Theater Company is proud to announce its participation in the Nationwide Reading of the seven winning plays of #ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence, a national short play competition for middle and high school students. On December 14, 2020 -- the 8-year remembrance of the shootings at Sandy Hook -- the winning titles will be performed virtually and over 50 other theatres and schools across the country and abroad.

 

A panel of nationally-recognized dramatists - Lauren Gunderson, Academy Award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney, Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan, Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang, and Karen Zacarías - selected the plays out of 184 submissions from twenty-three states and three countries in #ENOUGH’s call for teens to write 10-minute plays that confront the issue of gun violence.

 

The plays - all written by high school students - tackle gun violence through different lenses, from the threat of and anxiety over school shootings, police shooting, community violence, race, and gun culture in American history.
