Based on Hamlet’s “To be or not to be” speech, NATURAL SHOCKS is a 65-minute, one-woman tour-de-force play 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 is a national campaign of theater activism against gun violence. Lauren Gunderson is making her new play NATURAL SHOCKS available for regional and community theaters, colleges, and high schools to produce readings the weekend of April 20, 2018, the 19th anniversary of Columbine and the day of the National School Walkout. She is waving royalties for these readings and in exchange asks that events raise money to address gun violence.
With permission from the artist, a selection of 13 full-scale reproductions of Jamie Wyeth’s studies and portraits of Rudolf Nureyev will be on display in the Mammel Lobby. These works span some 30 years of work, including Wyeth’s posthumous meditations on the dancer.
The Mammel Lobby opens at 6:45pm on performance dates.
The exhibit is open to the public 11-4 M-F by appointment.

Choreographers from across Omaha will present pieces inspired by Nureyev’s Eyes. In the play, Nureyev imagines the ‘first dance’ ever created. Eight new or existing works will explore variations on this theme.
Featured choreographers: Kelly Holcombe Hanneman, Juliette Henning, Stepanie Huettner, Nichol Mason-Lazenby, Allyson Pfortmiller, Laura Sedivy, Brittany Steinger, and Michelle Strong.
Featured performers: Alison Ball, Annie Barton, Erin Brandt, Dominic Brown, Kendall Cameranesi, Kyan Doubet, Kara Gillmore, Stephanie Huettner, Jaeden Johnson, Erin Kouba, Nichol Mason-Lazenby, Phoebe Perry, Allyson Pfortmiller, Maria F. Reyes, Alyssa Rivera, Amanda Sealock, Scott Shinbara, Brittany Steinger, Kayla Strahan, and Michelle Strong
Doors at 5:30. Open to the Public. No reservations necessary. A suggested donation of $10-25 is encouraged. Proceeds will go to the artists.
