GunShowsqTHE GUN SHOW by EM Lewis

EXTENDED — SHOWS IN JANUARY
1/17 at 5:00 pm

Moving Arts

Los Angeles, CA 90027

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 relationship with firearms in The Gun Show. Veteran performer Chuma Gault shares Ms. Lewis’s unique perspective and true stories about America’s most dangerous pastime as if they were his own, with brutal honesty and poignant humor. Leaning neither right nor left, “The Gun Show” jumps into the middle of the gun control debate, and asks “Can we have a conversation about this?”

Award-winning playwright EM Lewis returns to Los Angeles with the west coast premiere of “The Gun Show,“ directed by Moving Arts’ artistic director Darin Anthony and starring Chuma Gault. After enjoying critical acclaim in Chicago for its world premiere, Lewis’s provocative and heartbreakingly honest examination of the issues surrounding the gun debate receives its west coast premiere at Moving Arts.

CCF is a festival of new works generated by ensembles using unconventional means. Four productions are presented in repertory over eight weeks, through January and February. Projects are selected through a review of submitted applications. Each selected production receives 10 performances, a small honorarium to offset production costs and staff support.

This year, each of the four companies is female driven. Although they were not selected for this reason, we’re proud to not only give a platform to rising companies, but to also be supporting the amazing female artists that are leading these companies.
