The Carthage Theatre Department presents “Big Guns” by Nina Segal and directed by Natalie Lall ’22, Thursday, April 7 through Saturday, April 9, in the Studio Theatre.
April 7-8 | 7:30 p.m.
April 9 | 3 p.m.
In Nina Segal’s riveting play, “Big Guns,” two characters, simply and anonymously named “One” and “Two,” live in a world in which fear is inescapable. “Big Guns” is about the moment just before — the moment before violence, the moment before the very thing to be feared rears its ugly head. It’s the prickling at the back of your neck, the faint taste of blood in your mouth, the threat of uncertainty. Did you really hear that haunting sound? Is that suspicious shape in the darkness innocent or something sinister? Part drama, part dark comedy, and another part an experimental political play, “Big Guns” ruthlessly and honestly looks humanity in the eyes and asks us to examine how and why we have become so desensitized to violence. How even as the endless catalogs of horrors and tragedies pile up in our world and on our screens, we have begun to barely feel them.
