An Unflinching Look – Bullying, Gun Violence, and the Aftermath

Event Details

Written by teachers Peter Nason and Deborah Bostock-Kelley, A NECESSARY CONVERSATION takes an unflinching look at bullying, gun violence and its aftermath. The show features 47 REASONS TO LIVE, a tale of the inner workings of a potential school shooter and 11:11 explores how mothers in a grief support group attempt to put on the façade of a normal life after experiencing a parent’s worst nightmare – the traumatic and violent loss of a child.

Evening talk-back panel includes:

Robert Allen, a father who recently lost his bullied son to suicide
Freddy Barton, Safe and Sound Hillsborough
Wendy Malloy, Tampa volunteer lead, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America
Emily Surak, 2017 Miss America’s Teen Miss Central Florida Outstanding Teen – platform teen suicide prevention
The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay
Ashley Ryan Lord, Anti-Bullying Action Committee for Hillsborough County/Kids on the Block

In September 2017, Bostock-Kelley was honored to be one of two recipients awarded Theatre Tampa Bay’s Jeff Norton Dream Grant to fund this project. She reached out to the Straz Center with their concept and they graciously helped make their vision a reality in TECO Theatre.
