On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed twenty-six innocent souls before taking his own life. These twenty-six innocent deaths, like pebbles thrown into a pond, created ripples and vibrations that were felt far beyond the initial rings. This is the story of those vibrations.

Taking on a sensitive subject of the shooting of children at their school in Newtown, 26 Pebbles gives us a dramatic look at the people of the town and their dealing with the tragedy.  Told from the perspective of a Town Hall meeting, 26 Pebbles approaches the story in a Town Hall setting with actors playing several roles.  Think Our Town style story telling as the various scenes unfold.  The script is powerful and gripping and will have the reader and the audience in tears by the end.  Great script for small theater companies and colleges
