 Conversation Starters brings new works to Tampa that have started conversations across the country.

 April 11:  The Gun Show, by award-winning playwright E.M. Lewis.

A man speaks words a woman wrote.  Sharing her experiences with guns. He tells us her stories because she’s not an actor. And so she won’t be alone.

Playwright E.M. Lewis explores the mixed feelings that most people have about guns. Because the extreme pro-gun and the extreme anti-gun people don’t need this play.

But everybody else does.

When gun control debates are shouting matches and nobody’s listening, this thoughtful play invites you to begin a conversation.

Directed by Elizabeth Brincklow, with Jim Wicker as the man.

Join us for a provocative evening of theatre — and a chance to talk about it.

Save the Dates

May 9:  Blackberry Winter, by Steve Yockey

June 13:  Johnny 10 Beers’ Daughter, by Dana Lynn Formby

Two more exciting new plays sure to keep the conversation going.

Conversation Starters — it’s a new TampaRep tradition.
