A conversation with the audience about personal experiences with guns will follow the performance."I am here to tell a public story and a private story. A story about guns in America and a story about my own experiences with guns in America."And so begins the riveting one-hour play. Lewis tells her story with raw honesty and gives audiences important insight into the nuances of Americas gun debate. Since the plays 2014 Jefferson Award-nominee world premiere in Chicago, it has gone on to receive critical acclaim and sold-out performances across the country and an international premiere in 2017 at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.In THE GUN SHOW, Lewis takes aim at her own relationship with firearms, from her experiences in a farming community in rural Oregon to the big cities of Los Angeles and New York. Lewiss stories are brought to life by Smith, who recently completed a month-long production of THE GUN SHOW at Pittsburghs Quantum Theatre.E.M. Lewis is a former ANPF winning playwright and served as host playwright for eight ANPF Fall Festival seasons. Among her many accolades as a playwright and librettist, she was awarded the 2016 Oregon Literary Fellowship in Drama, a Hodder Fellowship from Princeton University, and a playwriting fellowship from the New Jersey State Arts Commission.
