Works proudly presents the Bindlepunks Theatre Co. production of Our American Myth.
What would you kill for? Why do we have such a strong heritage of political violence in America?
Someone got shot and we want to understand why.
When Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head, we had some questions. Mainly, “WHY?!” We started asking our friends, families, strangers at bars, and the Interwebs. They told us things, and we put those things into a play…
So now we weave a new American myth:
The tale of a brave and conflicted politician, and the patriotic and idealistic young man who is ultimately driven to shoot her. If that sounds like your cup of tea… If you feel up to the challenge of the conversation… If you’re looking for something a little different in the South Bay…
We need your help to bring Our American Myth to life.
