Neath Little Theatre's Youth Workshop
Clowns with Guns
by Christopher Evans
4th, 5th and 6th April at 7.30pm
Step right up! Step right up! It’s the SCHOOL-SHOOT-O-RAMA! And the question everyone’s asking is “Am I walking out alive today?”
Clowns with Guns takes a theatrical and absurd look at the repeated and seemingly endless cycle of school violence. It happens, everyone is terribly upset, things continue on as normal, it happens again.
This story is mean. There are guns. The play puts school shooting violence out in the open and forces all of us to do the same.
Following the success of their last production (D.N.A.) Neath Little Theate's senior Youth Workshop perform a play that comments on the seeming acceptance of school and mass shootings. The author, Chris Evans has written an angry play that says : “This is not okay. We do not accept this.”
