Natural Shocks by Lauren Gunderson: Kansas City

#var:page_name# cover

Part of a national theatre campaign against gun violence, NATURAL SHOCKS is a 65-minute, 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 America in your very lap. The play is part confessional, part stand up, and part reckoning.

April 20, 2018 is the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting and the day the Parkland, Florida students are organizing a National school Walkout. Lauren is waiving royalties for readings the weekend of April 20, 2018 to raise awareness of gun violence and raise money for organizations like Everytown For Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.
