Natural Shocks: Theatre Activism to End Gun Violence

Based on Hamlet’s “to be or not to be” soliloquy, NATURAL SHOCKS features a woman waiting out a tornado in her basement. As the storm rages on, the audience bears witness to her stories and secrets, and learns the intimate details of her relationship with guns.

To raise awareness about gun violence on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting and the National School Walkout, Gunderson is waiving the royalties for readings the weekend of April 20, 2018. Readings are planned in 27 states with proceeds set to benefit organizations like Everytown For Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.

Proceeds from EBP's reading will go toward a scholarship fund for a child to attend Shakespeare in the Garage Summer Camp this July at Philly PACK.

A panel discussion on gun violence in Philadelphia will follow the reading.
