Shooter is the story of a shooter-massacre stopped before it can happen. When Jim sees a teenage boy with two shotguns beneath his trench coat nearing the entrance of the local high school, Jim pulls his own firearm and stops a potential massacre. Jim is a hero. But as more details on the incident are uncovered, what really happened becomes a lot less clear.
Shooter is a human tale focusing on the fallout between three friends, each of whom may have contributed some way to the would-be shooting. In an era rife with massacres carried out almost exclusively by men, Shooter explores the relationship of gun violence to the male identity.
Shooter stars Ean Sheehy (NYTW’s Red-Eye to Havre de Grace, Theresa Rebeck’s What We’re Up Against), CK Allen (Good Boys and True, Composure), David Perez-Ribada (Change at HERE), Michael Gnat (The Navigator, 2009 nytheatre.com Person of the Year) and Nicholas-Tyler Corbin (Lili Marlene at St. Luke’s Theater). The production team includes Chava Curland (assistant director & associate producer), Sarah Edkins (set), Cheyenne Sykes (lighting and projection design), Andy Evan Cohen (sound design), Cathy Small (costumes) and Charles C. Casano (stage manager).
