“Friends With Guns” is a subtle, savage feminist parable — a cautionary tale of the peril that may await women who dare to venture outside their accepted roles. The terror here is a monster who’s so innocuous, appealing and just plain likable — until he’s not.
So a play about guns also becomes a play about feminism, family dynamics, male dominance, self-realization, self-defense, companionship, community and a whole lot more. And things don't go well. But, as Walker says, "A gun doesn't have to go off to tear people apart.''
"Walker is a powerful and compassionate writer: both of these plays explore how ordinary people can and do become caught up in political horrors, even as they somehow have to keep living their lives." - Chris Jones
