This is Not a Gun Play by Caroline Lezny



July 02, 2024




Theatre Royal Haymarket

Can you teach someone to stay alive? In an alternate-reality Britain where guns are carried legally, where school shootings and lockdown drills are a fact of life, sixth-form teacher Victoria revisits three days from her past in a desperate attempt to teach her students how to survive in an active-shooter situation. From schoolyard squabbles to an impending wedding to a not-so-peaceful protest, Victoria must face how these three days defined her relationship to gun violence—and what she is going to do about it now.

This Script Session is currently full. However you can apply for future sessions here.

Script Sessions give playwrights the opportunity to meet with other young creatives and receive feedback on their scripts.

These very relaxed and informal sessions give playwrights valuable early feedback, while young actors get to practice their table reading skills, directors can share their vision for the piece and designers create quick response sketches. It's a great chance to network with other creatives, and give feedback on new work.
