By Michael Gotch. After last seasonÕs wildly successful Minor Fantastical Kingdoms, Michael Gotch returns with a darker look at middle America. In a withering Midwest town, Karen JamesÑwife, mother, and breadwinnerÑ has enough venison chili to survive the approaching winter but is being pushed to the edge by her husbandÕs work injury and her sonÕs misbehavior. A visit from a stranger promises relief, but only if Karen and her family can survive secrets from the past and the buried conflicts they reveal. A finalist in the Ashland New Play Festival's 2019 competition, Starter Pistol is a roller coaster ride of tension and laughter, a story of a family holding themselves together in the toughest of times while just trying to make it to the big Friday Night MegaBall drawing. Contains adult language and situations.
