Hendersonville Theatre is proud to participate in the nationwide play reading event, Enough! Plays to End Gun Violence. On November 6, 2023, one year from the 2024 elections, we will debut six new short plays presented in an evening of readings staged, simultaneously staged in more than 100 theaters, schools, and community groups across the country.
The six plays were written by student writers and selected by a panel of nationally-recognized dramatists from hundreds of submissions from throughout the United States in a call for teens to write 10-minute plays that confront the issue of gun violence.
The plays tackle gun violence through different lenses, from the threat of and anxiety over school shootings, police shootings, community violence, race, and gun culture in American history.
More details on all six winning playwrights, including bios, headshots, and their plays, can be found online here.
Enough! Plays to End Gun Violence is a theatre activism campaign launched by Michael Cotey in 2019. Enough! strives to spark critical conversations and incite meaningful action in communities across the country on the issue of gun violence through the creation of new works of theatre by teens. Its mission is to promote playwriting as a tool of self-expression and social change, harnessing this generation’s spirit of activism and providing a platform for America’s playwrights of tomorrow to discover and develop their voices today.
