About the play:
Based on Hamlet’s “To be or not to be” speech, 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. Her story—and the secret she reveals—puts the reality of guns in America front and center.
NATURAL SHOCKS is part confessional, part stand-up, and part reckoning.

About the Project
This is a national campaign of theater activism against gun violence. Lauren Gunderson is making her new play NATURAL SHOCKS available for regional and community theaters, colleges, and high schools to produce readings the weekend of April 20, 2018, the 19th anniversary of Columbine and the day of the National School Walkout. She is waving royalties for these readings and in exchange asks that events raise money to address gun violence
