26 Pebbles

October 5 - October 8

Orlando Repertory Theatre ( 1001 E Princeton St, Orlando, FL 32803)

Cost: Free (ticket required)

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed twenty-six innocent souls before taking his own life. These twenty-six innocent deaths, like pebbles thrown into a pond, created ripples and vibrations that were felt far beyond the initial rings. This is the story of those vibrations.

Similar in style to The Laramie Project, playwright and Theatre UCF alumnus Eric Ulloa conducted interviews with members of the community in Newtown and crafted them into an exploration of gun violence and a small town shaken by a horrific event.

Please join us for a post-show reception following the opening night performance on Thursday, October 5.
