Cry Havoc! And Let Teens Loose To Create Plays

Mara Richards Bim's high school company, Cry Havoc, lets students collaborate on dramas - about some very intense issues.

Last year, the teen theater company, Cry Havoc, created, ‘Shots Fired,’ an acclaimed show about the July 7th Dallas police ambush. Inevitably, parts of the many interviews that students did – interviews with officers and protestors and victims’ relatives – were cut for time. But now Cry Havoc founder-director Mara Richards Bim and her students are developing a new show on what got cut: the entire issue of gun violence.
