The Gun Show
Oregon playwright EM (Ellen) Lewis takes aim at her own relationship with firearms in THE GUN SHOW. Ms. Lewis's personal stories are drawn from her years growing up in rural Oregon. Poignant stories that are sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, but always brutally honest.
Ms. Lewis complicated relationship with guns is brought to life by Bellingham's veteran performer Ian Bivins.

" The dramas life-changing moments evoke a here-and-now immediacy, not easily forgotten." LA Weekly
"...compelling, provocative, and unexpected...THE GUN SHOW is neither pro- or anti-gun. Instead, Lewis uses her own alternately tragic, funny and life-changing experiences with guns to step outside the polarized ends of the gun control debate." Chicago Sun Times
"The power and rawness and unexpected amount of humor in Lewis' piece make it a welcome addition to the growing body of creative work around our national gun-related body count." Chicago Tribune
