On SoundCloud: MTC’s playwright in residence + the country’s #1 most produced playwright
Based on Hamlet’s “To be or not to be” speech, Natural Shocks is a 65-minute, one-woman tour-de-force play—this staged reading performed by playwright Lauren Gunderson—that bursts to life when we meet a woman waiting out an imminent tornado in her basement.
Her story—and the secret she reveals—puts the reality of guns in America front and center. Natural Shocks is part confessional, part stand-up, and part reckoning.
This one-night live stage production originally scheduled for March 16 was cancelled due to the shelter-in-place order, however it is now available in streaming audio from SoundCloud.
As a nonprofit arts organization, MTC relies heavily on the support of donors, subscribers, and single-ticket buyers. Individual support from patrons like you is crucial to our organization’s existence and MTC along with other arts organizations locally and globally are experiencing significant losses due to the impact of COVID-19.
Thank you for your continued patience and support of live theatre in Marin, and we hope everyone is staying safe.
