New Plays Fest Presents Fully Staged "Gun Show"

Most of the work of the Ashland New Plays Festival is staged readings of plays in development; ANPF's main event is in October.

But this weekend (June 14-15), the festival presents a full production. Subject matter and the playwright's bio clearly made this an easy choice: E.M. Lewis is from Oregon and wrote a play about the debate over firearms.

"The Gun Show" features a single actor and the playwright together, and takes a middle-of-the-road approach more interested in discussion than debate. E.M. Lewis visits, with actor Andrew William Smith and director Lisa Velten Smith.
