17-year-old Sara overslept the morning her high school was the target of a mass shooting.  Separated from her twin sister, she is forced to wait out the aftermath living off the grid with her estranged, ex-military aunt.  When a piece of national news breaks, Sara is inspired to right the past by protecting the future.    

Wild-hearted,  vulnerable,  vivid, and  funny, "hurt people" is a solo tour-de-force that uses multi-media, spoken word poetry, and dynamic movement to tell the story behind the next headline.



















The Research

"hurt people" was commissioned by Artistic Director Dr. Susan Russell for the 2014 Cultural Conversations Festival, “Right to Remain Violent: Gun Control F/Or a New Civilzation.”  Compiling years of research to compose the piece, Allison continues to research the impact and aftermath of mass shootings in our country. 



















Bring hurt people to your theatre

With four props, one video, and three portable furniture pieces, "hurt people" is powerful in its simplicity.  A 65-minute piece that plays best in intimate spaces, it is a brave, innovative, startling piece of theatre that appeals to seasoned theatre goers and fresh audiences alike.  Contact Allison on her CONTACT PAGE for more information on booking.
