Control: A Living Newspaper Gun violence causes 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 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. Town Hall Seattle May 9 through May 18. Fri May 9: 7:30 pm, Sat May 10: 7:30 pm, Sun May 11: 1:00pm, Fri May 16: 7:30pm, Sat May 17: 7:30 pm, Sun May 18: 1:00 pm.
