Americana: A Murder Ballad

April 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$15

By Morna Young
Cathy Thomas-Grant, Director

A nation’s youth are trapped in a murder ballad they cannot escape. A gunman lurks on every corner. He’s behind you. He’s beside you. He’s inside your mind. This is freedom. This is a war zone. This is Americana. But how do we break the ballad? Fresh from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe of 2022, winners of multiple Fringe First awards Pepperdine Scotland makes new music from old songs in this perpetual story of fear. While neither prop guns nor the sound of guns is used in this play, this is a story about gun violence in schools. This play also contains profanity. Recommended for ages 16+.
