About the play Natural Shocks by Lauren Gunderson:
Based on Hamlet's "To be or not to be," Natural Shocks is a new 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 America in your very lap. The play is part confessional, part stand up, and part reckoning.
