Shooter by Sam Graber
The play by Minneapolis based writer Sam Graber explores the correlation of our gun culture and the fragile state of the male identity in our world. Shooter tells the story of 3 long-time friends and a prevented high school shooting.
On a sunny weekday afternoon, Jim Bender sees a teenage boy approach towards the entrance of the local high school, two shotguns beneath a trench coat. In a moment's decision Jim pulls his own firearm, stopping a shooter-massacre before it happens. Jim Bender is a hero. But as the full story is revealed, this truth becomes a lot less clear - and that is not what people need it to be.
