This one-night performance is part of a nationwide reading against gun violence. On November 6th, one year before the 2024 elections, six short plays written by young-adult playwrights will be presented in an evening of readings staged simultaneously by theaters, schools, and community groups across the country.
These plays were selected out of 244 submissions from 36 states by a panel of renowned playwrights and will receive their premiere at The Kennedy Center as the cornerstone of a nationwide, multi-city reading.
