Production Tips for
Clowns with Guns (A Vaudeville)

by Christopher Evans

Step right up! Step right up! It’s the SCHOOL-SHOOT-O-RAMA! And the question everyone’s asking is “Am I walking out alive today?”

Clowns with Guns takes a theatrical and absurd look at the repeated and seemingly endless cycle of school violence. It happens, everyone is terribly upset, things continue on as normal, it happens again.

This story is mean. There are guns. The play puts school shooting violence out in the open and forces all of us to do the same. Read the play with this knowledge.

The script does the important work of challenging the actors to effectively embrace absurdism and satire to expose the circus of violence in our schools and society.
