The Goodman Theatre will participate in ENOUGH!: Plays to End Gun Violence: a ground-breaking series of readings staged simultaneously in multiple cities nationwide. Ticket reservations include all six 10-minute staged readings, performed in a single evening. This year’s plays were selected by nationally recognized dramatists Idris Goodwin, Lauren Gunderson, Zora Howard, Samuel D. Hunter, David Henry Hwang, Octavio Solis, and Lloyd Suh.
The six 10-minute plays authored by teenage playwrights, include Niarra C. Bell’s The Smiles Behind, Amanda Fagan’s Lightning Strike, Pepper Fox’s A Call for Help, Sam Lee Victor’s A Disorderly House, Justin Cameron Washington’s No Prospering Weapons, and Valentine Wulf’s The Matter at Hand. This is Goodman’s third time participating in ENOUGH!, the first being a virtual offering in 2020, featuring Ghost Gun, written by Olivia Ridley and directed by Ken-Matt Martin. The second offering was presented on April 20, 2022 and featured eight plays by teenage playwrights and was directed by Quenna L. Barrett and Georgette Verdin.
