Nationwide Reading

    December 14, 2020

    We're inviting you to join our ground-breaking initiative by producing a staged reading of the winning  #ENOUGH plays in your community on December 14, the 8-year remembrance of the shootings at Sandy Hook.

     

    Our goal: to spark critical conversations about gun violence and inspire meaningful action nationwide.


    The #ENOUGH Nationwide Reading is the culmination of a yearlong theatre activism initiative that started with our call for submissions from teens to write 10-min plays that confront the issue of gun violence.

    Now that we've selected our 7 winning plays, we are making making these plays available for FREE to any theatre, school, college, or community organization to produce a reading on December 14th along with dozens of other groups across the country .

     

    These readings can be done VIRTUALLY or held IN-PERSON, wherever that is possible and safe.

    It's time for ALL communities to have conversations about gun violence.

    And YOU can lead that conversation!

    COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

    In addition to staging a reading of the plays, we're asking producing organizations to deepen the conversation with these two COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT components:

     

    CREATE SPACE FOR DIALOGUE  

    Host a post-show virtual discussion on gun violence. Invite your key local stakeholders - advocates and activists, artists, your mayor, city council members, aldermen, your state representatives, educational leadership - to participate in a frank conversation for your audience about how gun violence impacts your community.

    COMMIT TO AN

    ACTION ITEM

    Allow our plays to inspire meaningful action in your community. Action items can have many forms. It may be as simple using the reading as a fundraiser for a local anti-gun violence group. Your action item could also meet the unique needs of your community when it comes to gun violence. Seek out a local advocacy group or team up with other local organizations and brainstorm your community-specific action item together.
