Bang Bang You're Dead

Benefit Show 2013

Book by William Mastrosimone; Directed by Ron Quirk

To make up for cancelling Friday night's performance, a matinee has been added for Sunday, Jan. 27 at 3:00 pm.

A high school student lies in a jail cell for having committed unspeakable crimes. Five fellow students he murdered earlier that day—figments of his imagination, not ghosts—enter his cell demanding answers. When Josh evades their questions, they become akin to a chorus of Greek Furies who torment him, make him re-live events, and drive him towards the threshold of remorse.

Show guidance: Bang Bang You're Dead is not recommended for children under the age of 13.

This show has closed.

Seating for our benefit show is general admission, and payment is by donation payable at the door by cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover accepted). The box office opens at 7:30 and we encourage you to arrive early to get the best seats.

This year's show will benefit the Crime Victims' Center of Chester County which provides free and confidential services to victims and their family members and significant others who reside in or were victimized in Chester County, Pennsylvania. All proceeds raised during the show will be targeted towards prevention/education programs to promote community awareness and reduce victimization.

You may have read the description of this show and it may have made you uncomfortable. It is an uncomfortable subject matter, and we all wish that shows like this did not need to be written and performed. Unfortunately, as we are all too aware, school shootings continue to be a reality. The Barley Sheaf Players have made a commitment to giving back to the local community by putting on a benefit show every winter to educate and give back. Bang Bang You’re Dead is a show that may be difficult to watch, especially in light of the recent tragedies in Connecticut and California; however, we ask that you take this as an opportunity to honor the victims and donate to the Chester County Crime Victims' Center. Your generous donation will go towards the local anti-bullying education program, which we hope will help prevent incidents such as these from happening in the future.
