A Gun Play and Other New York Pieces consists of five comic works, each of which addresses the problematic issues of censorship, the one per cent, Moocs (on-line teaching), the rights of Asian- Americans and women, victims of war, and gun control. All take place in New York City in an art gallery, a university, and a Greenwich Village street.

The first show on the program A Case of Degenerate Art is an on-site performance at 7:00 in the art gallery of the TNC. It was first performed at the Mischkin Gallery on 22nd Street.

Beginning at 8:00 in the Cabaret, the second part called University Daze consists of two plays: “The Ivory Tower”, about a college professor who has promised himself not to crack due to the present crisis in our country (first heard on Arts on Air, the Clocktower Station downtown); the second “Get on Line” is set in the future and focuses on the last two living teachers in the country who are not on line. University Daze was first performed in the English Department of Baruch College.

The third section begins with “The Mill”, an antiwar vision conceived by a writer who has never been anywhere near a war; music is by David Weinstein, one of the founding directors of Roulette (an experimental music organization newly settled in Brooklyn). “A Gun Play” about a local Chinese laundryman’s interactions with robbers, police, and neighbors concludes the performance.
