Gunshot Medley: Part 1 is a lyrical and mystical new play about the struggle against systemic racism. 

Set in a haunted North Carolina graveyard, this delicately-crafted work brings past and present together in a soulful tale of lives destroyed by the deep-seated racial tensions and conflicts that have marred America's history from Antebellum south to the present day.

Reviews

“A solid shot to the heart and mind. Singing is smooth, gorgeous and melodic, lulling the listeners, both onstage and beyond the fourth wall, into realms of serenity, emphasizing deep heartbreak and incomparable joy.”
                                                                                                                                                                     - Stage Raw

"Elegant, moving and rigorous...poetic theatre. There’s a young playwright in town whose name you would do well to remember. It is Dionna Michelle Daniel.”
                                                                                                                                                             - Cultural Weekly

“The beauty of this play might be in its ability to teach the audience how to hear what it has to say. By the end, the audience breathed with the performer. That is a powerful play. Support this voice. 
Go see the play. Listen.”                                                                                                          - Discover Hollywood

“Brilliant play…a work of tragic majesty. This is what theater is for, it’s why it matters. Desean Kevin Terry directs with bold and imaginative expansiveness, creating a kinetic sense of movement and drama in harmony with his excellent design team.”                                                                            Stage and Cinema
