ABOUT THE #ENOUGH NATIONWIDE READING

4/20/22

Over 1,300 U.S. children were killed by gunfire in 2020. On April 20th, 2022, the 23rd anniversary of the Columbine High School tragedy, teens are looking for answers on how to avoid becoming another statistic and saying, "Enough is enough."

 

#ENOUGH selected eight short new theatrical works by young writers from across the country to be presented in a ground-breaking series of simultaneously staged readings in multiple cities on the same evening. From New York to Portland, Chicago to Orlando, Atlanta to Milwaukee, the goal of this cross-country effort by more that fifty communities is to spark critical conversations about gun violence and inspire meaningful action.

Launched in 2019, #ENOUGH hopes to harness the current generation's spirit of activism by promoting playwriting as a tool for self-expression and social change and supplying a platform for America's future playwrights to develop their voices today.
