    Robert lets the rhythm of brutal gun violence statistics wash over you here — Setting us up for wave after wave of facts and figures, a counterpoint to loss, the rent of grief and real, unimaginable horror and loss. It's overwhelming in its energy, steady and relentless, pulling us -- hopefully -- out of our collective slumber and stirring us towards meaningful change.

    I saw this play performed in Minneapolis at Safety Off, a gun control theatre production. It worked powerfully as a final play, chronicalling the history of gun violence on campuses, workplaces and places of worship, while the statistics weighed on your heart. It's a necessary play for your production on gun control and activism. This is the kind of play that can do more than make people react, it could make them act -- get out and vote, protest, or write to their politicians and be a part of the movement.
