About the show

Squeaky Bicycle Productions presents a new darkly comedic and heartfelt play that examines American gun culture. More…

Tommy Freely buys a short-round revolver online in an attempt to feel in control of his life. Once his fiancée finds out about it, he timeshares the gun to his deadbeat friends. This is a play about a play about that gun. Tommy is in love, but out of control. Jessica can't get out of her own way. Becca is broke, Philly is a tool, Teddy has hit a dead end, and Rich Dick is somebody's Dad. No one wants to own a gun in this day and age in a liberal metropolitan area, but most wouldn’t mind having it a couple days out of the year. 'Ten Ways on a Gun' is an exploration of why anyone, anywhere, does what they do.

"The production is plagued by a few logical flaws around the very idea of timesharing a gun... While a little too caught up in the conceit of a theater company devising a play about the subject matter they are truly addressing, director Kathryn McConnell and Squeaky Bicycle Productions do reveal ...
