Bang Bang

By Kat Sandler

Set against the backdrop of the banking crisis, a confrontation between a real estate agent and a tenant takes an unexpected turn.

A Factory commissioned world premiere.

Featuring: Sébastien Heins, Jeff Lillico, Khadijah Roberts-Abdullah, Karen Robinson and Richard Zeppieri.

A white playwright uses the shooting of an unarmed young Black man by a police officer as a “jumping off point” for his hit play that is soon to be adapted into a major movie. As Hollywood comes knocking for the writer, he makes a surprise visit to the home of the officer involved. With Sandler’s trademark wit, BANG BANG traces the impact of what it means to be inspired by true events.
