The Gun Show

Written by E.M. Lewis
Directed by Darin Anthony
December, 2014


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.
