The focus is on creating an event that allows us to share this incredibly layered script while showcasing the amazing artistic team who were assembled pre-COVID.
Content Warning: the play does include some strong language, sound effects that replicate bombings, conversations around death, and explores the loss of life due to random acts of violence.
