#ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence
With the rampant nature of gun violence in educational settings, it is essential to hear the voice of students affected by this epidemic. “#ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence” is a 2020 series of seven 10-minute plays written by high school students about gun violence in schools. Project leader Katie Nowak will produce three of these plays – “Malcolm,” “Ms. Martin’s Malaise,” and “Guns in Dragonland” – in the Underground Theatre with a student-based cast to open a dialogue about this ubiquitous violence. Along with the production, we will partner with a Chicago-based gun-violence-centered group such as Students Demand Action or One Aim Illinois either do a talkback or fundraise. This project aims to produce theater that creates real change in the educational community.
