Friends with Guns by Stephanie Alison Walker  

*Part of a rolling World Premiere*

Directed by Shalee Coleman

Two sleep-deprived moms meet at a West LA park, and it’s instant sisterhood. Their husbands hit it off, too, and it seems as though they’ve found their urban family — until guns enter the conversation. Friends With Guns is a dark comedy that pulls the curtain back on liberals with guns. It explores what happens when one person in a marriage suddenly does a 180 on the gun issue and it asks what we can compartmentalize and what we can’t.
