“THE GUN SHOW (CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS?)” AT QUANTUM THEATRE IN PITTSBURGH, PA
While there are several guns conjured to the imagination in EM Lewis’s one-person play The Gun Show (Can We Talk About This?), the most frightening moment of the play (for me, at least) doesn’t involve any weapons at all. That moment comes when Andrew William Smith–my colleague at the CMU School of Drama, whom I know to be a reasonable, rational, calm human being – becomes red-faced with fury as he channels conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’s incoherent and illogical rage at the prospect of even the most minor regulation on guns.
