Main Street Theater - Houston is participating in a national campaign of theater activism against gun violence led by playwright Lauren Gunderson. 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. MST will offer 2 readings: 10am at MST - Rice Village and 7pm at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church at 1805 W. Alabama and Woodhead.
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.
Shannon Emerick will perform the play in an informal reading setting. It's free to attend with suggested donations. All donations received will go to Everytown for Gun Safety. Please RSVP to email@example.com if you would like to join us. For more details about the nationwide theater activism campaign, please visit https://www.naturalshocks.org/
