In our highly politicized environment, conversations about gun ownership and gun control go nowhere. In fact, the very words used to discuss guns in America shut down the conversation between people on opposite sides of the debate.
What would happen if we sat down and listened to each other? Following the success of Shots Fired, the acclaimed documentary theatre piece about the 2016 Dallas Police shootings, Cry Havoc Theater Company is creating a new documentary work that examines gun violence in America and the emotionally charged conversations around it.
MARA RICHARDS BIM (DIRECTOR) is the founder of Cry Havoc Theater Company, an adjunct faculty member at Eastfield College, and a frequent consultant for Dallas ISD’s Department of Theatre and Dance. Her Dallas devising and directing credits include Cry Havoc’s The Great American Sideshow, Shots Fired (co-director), Shut Up and Listen! and The (out)Siders Project. For three seasons she managed the education programs at Dallas Theater Center including the national award-winning Project Discovery (2013 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award).
