Natural Shocks, by Lauren Gunderson
Inspired by the words of Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy, Lauren Gundersons Natural Shocks bursts to life when we meet a woman named Angela, whos waiting out an approaching storm in her basement. She brims over with quirks, stories, and confessions. As the real danger grows imminent, she reveals a final secret that puts the reality of guns in America into sharp focus.
Natural Shocks stars Brittany Nelson, who first took on the role in a 2018 reading at Vanderbilt University Medical School, as part of a nationwide wave of readings organized to commemorate the anniversary of the 1999 mass shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado. Brittany was featured in TWTPs Secrets of a Soccer Mom (2010), and both productions of SISTAS: The Musical (2017, 2019).
HAUNTING! [Angela] is warm and charming and the person with whom youd gladly wait out a storm with a bottle of wine and a game of Monopoly. Theater Mania
