A New York playwright's inspiring play about the events
following the Sandy Hook shooting will debut at U-W
La Crosse tonight.
Eric Ulloa's Ooo-yo-wa 26 Pebbles is a documentary
play based on the actual words of survivors of the
20-12 Sandy Hook shooting.
Ulloa's Ooo-yo-wa says the play is a chance to look
at a community affected in such a negative way and
see how it is coping afterwards.
This play is unique because everything is based off
interviews with survivors and family members of the
It's not a play about a shooting in a school, it's
not a play about pro-gun control, anti-gun control,
it's not about any of that.
It's about a community.
And the idea is that I give you their words.
Every word in this play is their word, every um, every
period, every dash.
It's their words.
26 Pebbles will be performed at 7-30 tonight and tomorrow
night at U-W-L's Toland Theatre in the Center for
the Fine Arts.
