Live storytelling Moth-style about lives touched by guns

Houses on the Moon Theater Company will bring storytellers and performers to Arts on the Lake, 640 Route 52, Lake Carmel, on Saturday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. for a preview of their new show, gUN COUNTRY.

Based in Manhattan, Houses on the Moon is noted for its documentary work. A previous production was De Novo, the true story of a 14-year-old Guatemalan’s legal struggle to stay in the United States.

“In its present form, gUN COUNTRY is something like The Moth Radio Hour,” said James Shearwood, theatre program director at Arts on the Lake, “except all the stories are from people whose lives have been touched by guns.”

No stranger to storytelling, Jeffrey Solomon, one of the directors of Houses on the Moon, has been a Grand Slam Winner on The Moth — the National Public Radio program that features live storytelling.

Tickets for Houses on the Moon at Arts on the Lake are $12 ($2 discount for AotL members and students) and may be purchased at or 845-228-2685.
