You think you know your friends, your neighbors, your spouse, but what happens when you suddenly find out they have a garage full of guns? This new dark comedy explores the complicated issue of gun proliferation when two young liberal couples are forced to confront their assumptions about who should own a gun and why. The time of easy answers regarding this issue is long gone. In the wake of current events, we are all forced to reexamine our strongly held beliefs about gun ownership. Friends With Guns explores the question of what we can compartmentalize…and what we can’t. It examines what happens when guns enter the conversation. It pulls the curtain back on liberals with guns. It asks what happens when suddenly one person in a marriage does a 180 on the gun issue. And it does all of this through a female lens.

Performances will be held at The Road on Magnolia.

BIOS
Loren Lieb and Alan Stepakoff have been advocating for common sense solutions to gun violence for 20 years. Currently, both serve on the Board of Directors of Women Against Gun Violence.

Loren is also a founding member and co-President of the San Fernando Valley Chapter of Brady United Against Gun Violence. Brady chapters (formerly Million Mom March) were formed in the aftermath of a shooting at a Jewish community center in a Los Angeles suburb in 1999. Loren and Alan’s 6-year-old son was injured in that attack.

Loren has a Masters in Public Health from UCLA, and spent her career as an epidemiologist with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. She uses her training as an epidemiologist to examine gun violence as a public health issue, which seeks to identify risk factors and emphasizes evidence-based prevention. She works to educate community, faith, and professional groups about the public health approach to gun violence prevention.

Alan has a Masters in Computer Science from CSUN. He spent 25 years in IT management at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, and he is active with the Anti-Defamation League.
