Kitchen Dog Theater, in collaboration with SMU/Division of Theatre, will participate in the nationwide reading of the seven winning plays of #ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence, a national short play competition for middle and high school students. On December 14 - the 8-year remembrance of the shootings at Sandy Hook - the winning titles will be virtually performed live virtually by current SMU Theater undergrads at Kitchen Dog as well as at 49 other theatres and schools across the country and abroad.

A panel of nationally-recognized dramatists - Lauren Gunderson, Academy Award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney, Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan, Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang, and Karen Zacarías - selected the plays out of 184 submissions from 23 states and three countries in #ENOUGH’s call for teens to write 10-minute plays that confront the issue of gun violence.

The plays - all written by high school students - tackle gun violence through different lenses, from the threat of and anxiety over school shootings, police shooting, community violence, race, and gun culture in American history.

The performance will be followed by a live interactive talkback with artists, students, local activists, and the audience on how gun violence impacts our community.
