Out of Hand Theater will stream its one-actor Conceal and Carry on Saturday, April 19, via Zoom. The piece takes on gun violence in America by delving into the psyche of a liberal gun owner and the cryptic history of the NRA. Conceal and Carry was first performed in homes across Atlanta last fall and winter. The evening begins with a “cocktail” meet-and-greet at 7:30 p.m. The 8 p.m. performance is followed by a post-performance conversation with playwright Sean Lewis and Louisa Basarrate of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Free. Reservations required. Go HERE.
