Playwrights say #neveragain
CTC is hosting a staged reading on March 28 of a new collection of short plays—each written in response to a different school shooting in the United States. The full-length compilation includes works by 19 playwrights and is being distributed freely in association with the Protest Plays Project and Code Red Playwrights.
Wednesday, March 28
Admission is free.
Audiences are encouraged to donate to Everytown for Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action, or similar organizations that work on behalf of the safety of young people.
Readings of this compilation are planned in theaters, universities, schools, and community centers across the country March 14-24 to coincide with the many protests and walkouts being driven by brave young people standing up for each other in the wake of terrible tragedies.
Many of the short plays contain mature language and themes. As playwright Rachael Carnes writes in her introduction to the collection, “This is tough stuff. Reader and listener discretion is advised.”
