Posted by: stephenm518on 2016/6/6 8:50:00 743 reads Ten Ways on a Gun
by Dylan Lamb
Based on The Ballad of Tommy Freely conceived by Jessica Person & The Soul Motion Architects
June 23-July 9, 2016

Tommy Freely, a troubled Brooklynite, buys a gun (online) in an attempt to regain control over his life; but before he can get that sweet, sweet release his girlfriend FREAKS. Desperate, Tommy opts to “timeshare” the gun with his deadbeat coworkers at his dead-end telemarketing job. The result? Tragically hilarious calamity...

Meanwhile, Jessica Person, the floundering director of The Soul Motion Architects theatre and dance ensemble, catches wind of Tommy’s plight. Desperate for a breakthrough performance, she pursues his story at all costs. The result? Tragically hilarious calamity. This is a play, about Jessica’s play, about Tommy’s story, about that gun. The results remain to be seen...

“Given the horrific things we see on the news these days, Ten Ways does an admirable job of taking its audience on a refreshingly humorous trek across very tricky terrain, which Mr. Lamb shrewdly elevates to a higher level with blunt commentary on how something acquired for your protection can also be the greatest threat to your life.” - Willie Keaton, Theatre (New York)
