How do you talk about something unthinkable? Including Shooter offers a way to begin by exploring the context of a fictional shooting in three sections. The first is a dreamlike look at the pressures in the lives of a group of high school students, one of whom, James Smith, chooses violence as an escape. The second revisits the same students ten years later, as they struggle to move on -- though not all remain among the living. The third section takes place outside of time, where James finds himself among a society of shooters who came before him. This absorbing, elegiac play spotlights one unforgettable character after another in a series of interweaving scenes and monologues that never oversimplify.
