The Story of the Gun
created & performed by Mike Daisey
directed by Jean-Michele Gregory
Daisey takes on his most provocative subject yet: America’s relationship with guns. Throwing easy answers and partisan bickering out the window, he delves into the history of the gun and its place in our national culture. How did the gun evolve as a weapon? What has gun ownership meant in different eras? What does it mean for us as a people today? Daisey cuts through the political static with his trademark blend of hilarious comedy, brilliant observation and pitch-perfect timing.
“The master storyteller—one of the finest solo performers of his generation.” – The New York Times
