Gun violence is the Puget Sound region's #1 health emergency causing more preventable death in Washington State than car accidents or smoking. The current national debate obscures fundamental human issues like freedom and safety and emphasizes fear.

Produced with Town Hall Seattle, Strawshop presents A Living Newspaper production: a dramatic examination of the stories and opinions that shape this uniquely American debate. Inspired by an innovation of the Federal Theatre Project during The Great Depression, our acting company is organized like a newspaper staff, with reporters, writers, and editors. The company will then offer perspectives on the issue of gun control by taking the audience to investigate where our laws were written and where the hyperbole is most absurd.

A civic discussion is a possible (and necessary) step forward. Go online to townhallseattle.org to learn how you can get involved in the conversation this spring.
