Gun Control

One major character in the play is Trevor's gun. We see guns on TV and in movies all the time, but in a stage production it is quite different - you can hear the movement of the slide, smell the oil, and experience the horror of having a gun pointed at you. Finding a gun for the play was almost as challenging as finding an African American man who can dance, sing, and do Capoeira! It turns out, New York City has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country - even carrying a theatrical dummy gun is illegal. I had a hard time finding a realistic looking water gun in NYC! Luckily, I found a theater prop rental house that will supply us with this item, and a letter that will keep me out of jail if I get caught with it. Have your checkbooks ready just in case I do need to be bailed out!
