Tell us about your show.

America is in the midst of a gun violence epidemic. Your Thoughts and Prayers careens through the history of mass violence and examines why Americans insist on being so violent to one another.

From the birth of a nation, to the founding of the NRA, to current shootings perpetrated by white supremacists, nothing is off limits in this one man show. This play was performed after each mass shooting that occurred within the United States in 2018.

Describe your show in three words.

Harrowing, gripping, somber.

Why should someone come see your show?

Because the issues that I talk about in terms of gun violence can happen anywhere to anyone.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

The Punisher.  Because of the ultra-violence.

If you could see only one show at the Halifax Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

Orpheus’ Descent.
