Six years ago, a 10-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his little brother. Now, a court-appointed social worker has come for a home visit to determine if the boy should be let off parole early. With One In The Chamber, Ovation Award-nominated playwright (Dysnomia) and HBO Audience Award-winning screenwriter (The Four-Faced Liar) Marja-Lewis Ryan crafts a timely drama about family dysfunction and the effects of gun violence in America. With thematic echoes of Ordinary People and Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?, One In The Chamber goes right to the heart of a national crisis as seen through its day-to-day impact. Learn More
