A History of Everything

created by Mara Richards Bim and the teens of Cry Havoc Theater Company
at the Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park

If you were to write your own history of everything, what would you include? The election of Barack Obama or the 2016 rise of the alt-right? The discovery of penicillin or the detonation of the first atomic bomb? Would you favor the invention of the printing press over the creation of the first contraceptive pill? 

In A History of Everything, the teens of Cry Havoc tell the story of humanity as they see it, highlighting the cyclical nature of the world and the ongoing human struggle to find meaning in life. Based on the 2012 production by Ontroerend Goed and Sydney Theatre Company.

Watch the making of Shots Fired as we prepare for Babel.

In our highly politicized environment, conversations about gun ownership and gun control go nowhere.

In fact, the very words used to discuss guns in America shutdown the conversation between people on opposite sides of the debate. It is as if we are living in Babel, in a state of confusion, unable to get anywhere or to understand one another.

What would happen if we sat down and listened to each other?

Following the success of Shots Fired, the acclaimed documentary theatre piece about the 2016 Dallas Police shootings, Cry Havoc Theater Company is creating a new documentary work that examines gun violence in America. For Babel, the company will travel locally and nationally collecting interviews from voices on multiple sides of the gun ownership/gun violence debate. Those interviews, along with the teens' reflections on them, will offer a glimpse into the emotionally charged, national conversation.
