September 20 – October 15, 2018
A Play by Eric Ulloa
Directed by Jules Aaron
Produced by David Hunt Stafford
This is 26 PEBBLES:
On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed twenty-six innocent souls before taking his own life. These twenty-six innocent deaths, like pebbles thrown into a pond, created ripples and vibrations that were felt far beyond the initial rings. This is the story of those vibrations.
Similar in style to The Laramie Project, playwright Eric Ulloa conducted interviews with members of the community in Newtown and crafted them into an exploration of gun violence and a small town shaken by a horrific event.
Powerful…gripping…emotional…and yet, a much more uplifting night at the theatre than one might presume.
