'The Repossession of James Edward Pough: Mass Shooting in Baymeadows'

It was the worst mass shooting to ever take place in Florida. That is, until the shootings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.  Now, a new and original play tells the story of the GMAC mass shooting in Jacksonville in 1990.

The Repossession of James Edward Pough: Mass Shooting in Baymeadows is a piece of documentary theater by local writer Tim Gilmore that explores the genesis and aftermath of the incident. It will have a four-day run at FSCJ, beginning April 11.

Gilmore joined us with more, along with Ken McCulough, the play’s Director and Professor of Theater, FSCJ; and two of the play's Actors, Autumn Franks and Allen Melton.
