Event Notes


The Shot will star Emmy nominee and Broadway alum Sharon Lawrence (Cabaret, Fiddler on the Roof). Written by Robin Gerber, Michelle Joyner will direct the production. Onstage audience talkbacks after each performance!

Inspired by the story of former Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham, this fictional work looks at her life, including her experiences of domestic abuse at the hands of her cruel husband who inherited the newspaper from Katharine’s father. Graham became a force in politics, winning a Pulitzer Prize for revealing the Pentagon Papers, uncovering Nixon’s abuse of power and crimes in the Watergate scandal, as well as becoming the first female CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

“The Shot is a story for this moment,” said Gerber in a statement. “If women can be abused with impunity, we can be paid less, denied opportunity and autonomy over our bodies. I hope The Shot empowers women who suffer intimate partner violence, and gives the rest of us a window into an abused woman’s soul.”
