Combustible Company presents The Gun Show by EM Lewis

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until March 24, 2019

$10 – $30

From a farming community in rural Oregon to the big cities of Los Angeles and New York, playwright EM Lewis takes aim at her own complicated relationship with firearms in The Gun Show. Join Combustible Company for a unique perspective and true stories about America’s most dangerous pastime. Poignant yet comedic, this surprisingly-intimate and brutally honest show leans neither right nor left and jumps into the middle of the debate and asks: “Can we have a conversation about this?”

While firearms-related suicides continue to spike in Minnesota and across the country, partisan gridlock has largely blocked new policies that might reverse the trend. The diverging cultures of rural and urban America foster starkly different attitudes towards guns, further complicating efforts to find common ground. Against this backdrop, Ms Lewis’ deeply personal stories gives a human voice to both sides of a complicated issue.
