Blogh: Fiction stories (especially movies) are often implicated in America’s stunning level of gun violence. Local theater artists hope that storytelling can also sway people away from guns. Pittsbugh PACT (Public Action Community Theatre) seeks short written works, including plays, for its gun-control community arts action, to be held Downtown on Sat., Jan. 26. The event is a collaboration with activist troupe NoPassport, which is leading a theater action in Washington, D.C., and groups including OnePittsburgh and CeaseFirePA. The actions are scheduled to coincide with that day’s national gun-control march on Washington.
