Ballard High School Playmakers tackle gun violence in Bang Bang You’re Dead! and Eric LaRue

The Ballard High School Playmakers will stage two, one-act plays about school gun violence in their annual spring production. The community is invited to attend. Please share with your followers.

Bang Bang You’re Dead! was first produced at Thurston High School in Springfield, Ore., where a fatal shooting took place the previous year. It opens in character Josh’s cell after he has killed his parents and five classmates. The ghosts of the classmates demand to know why he killed them.

Eric LaRue is the story of Janice LaRue, the mother of Eric, a 17-year-old boy who shot and killed three of his classmates in school. Three months after Eric is jailed, Janice has not yet gone to see him or found a way to show herself in her community.

The cast features 19 BHS students, and the play is directed by Joe Lambright.Performance Details
