    Putting a gun control question through a funhouse mirror of a game show may sound crazy, but it doesn't come close to the absurdity Philip Kaplan displays here in this BRILLIANT satire on our obsession with guns. Kaplan hits everything he aims at and his targets are well deserved. It's just too bad the intended audience for a piece like this will be too busy out on a shooting range somewhere (or worse yet, a supermarket or park setting) taking aim at would-be imaginary transgressors.

    This play is hilarious and horrifying at the same time. You probably know each of these characters in your lives and it's scary as hell. This witty play uses the gameshow to its advantage and keeps things remarkably light while exploring dark, relevant themes.

    Using the structure of a gameshow, this one-of-kind-play puts the "good guy with a gun argument" in the crosshairs and shows it as the wrong response to gun violence in America. If you're producing a festival on gun control, check out this play.
