One-Man Shot

If there’s a moral to David Barker’s Dodging Bullets, playing again (hurray!) at ASU for one night only (boo!), it probably has something to do with being careful what one wishes for. Barker meant to spend his 2004 sabbatical from ASU (where he teaches in the Theater Arts Department) developing a new solo show about turning 50. But a visit to see his family in Boston that July turned into the stuff of which, well, one-man shows are made: while helping his sister leave her abusive husband, Barker was shot at by his brother-in-law.

Barker plays nine others as well as himself in compact, compelling scenes from this shocking era of his own life, at the Lyceum Theatre.
