Through dramatic vignettes—historical, humorous, informative, and poignant—Gunplay’s kaleidoscope of views explores the mystique, the mythologies and the power of guns in American society without taking sides or supporting any particular perspective. It is a play that should catalyze rich discussion on the constellation of issues around guns, gun safety, and gun violence.
