  • Performance of Frank Higgins' Gunplay

    4/22/13
    6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    Tufte Performance and Production Center
    Greene Theater

    On Monday, April 22, at 6:30 p.m., Emerson College will stage a reading of Gunplay, a play by Frank Higgins that explores the complexity of America's relationship to guns. The performance, directed by Senior Distinguished Producer-in-Residence Benny Sato Ambush, includes a multicultural, interracial cast of Emerson students, Emerson Performing Arts Department alumni, and faculty actors as well as professional actors from the Boston region. Following the reading, Ambush will lead a moderated discussion.

    Through dramatic vignettes that are historical, humorous, informative, and poignant, Gunplay's kaleidoscope of views explores the mystique and power of guns in the United States. The play represents many points of view about guns and gun violence without taking sides and does not support any particular perspective; instead, it encourages audiences to form their own conclusions.

    The 14-member cast of Gunplay includes local professional actors Diego Arciniegas, Miranda Craigwell, Cliff Odle, Bob Pemberton, and Michael Tow; Associate Professor of Acting Kathleen Donohue and Assistant Performing Arts Professor Christina Marin; Emerson College Performing Arts students Rose Fieschko, BA '13, Stefan Martin, Alexander Neher, BA '14, Theresa Nguyen, BFA '13, Marc Pierre, BFA '13, and Noelle Vinas, BA '13; and alumna Cheyenne Postell, BA '10.

    The reading is part of Emerson College President Lee Pelton's commitment to holding conversations about gun violence on campus.

    The event is free and open to the public and seating is first come, first served.

    A pair of inquisitive adolescents encounter a charismatic drifter with an incredible story in this drama from Take Shelter writer/director Jeff Nichols. Mississippi adolescents Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) are exploring along the mighty Mississippi when they stumble upon a small island inhabited by Mud (Matthew McConaughey), a desperado who claims to be on the run from brutal bounty hunters after killing a man in Texas. According to Mud, his true love Juniper (Reese Witherspoon) is awaiting his arrival in town, and together they plan to make a daring escape. Fascinated, the two boys agree to help Mud slip past his pursuers, despite the potential dangers of doing so. Sam Shepard, Sarah Paulson, and Michael Shannon co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
