Natural Shocks, by Lauren Gunderson

Regional Premiere

Inspired by the words of Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy, Lauren Gunderson’s Natural Shocks bursts to life when we meet Angela, who’s waiting out an approaching storm in her basement. She brims over with quirks, stories, and confessions. As the real danger grows imminent, she reveals a final secret that puts the reality of guns in America into sharp focus.
