Big Guns

Nina Segal

PaperBack (20 Mar 2017)

At this point,

at this exact moment,

a man enters the stage.

A man enters the stage and

the man has a gun.


BIG GUNS is the prickling at the back of your neck, the faint taste of blood on your teeth, the could-be sounds of a strange figure in the semi-darkness. The YouTube clip you hope doesn’t load but can’t help watching.

Privacy. Pornography. Flat-pack furniture.

BIG GUNS is violence. Against others. Against ourselves. It’s paranoia. It’s a society living in fear. It’s the moment just – before.

'Like Sarah Kane, Nina Segal has the ability to see the tree that grows from the seed, the civil war from the sordid hotel room... Her new two-hander, Big Guns, squeamishly excavates our insatiable clickbait culture and reveals the darkness that lurks in plain sight on our browser tabs. Recipes for no-bake cakes. Make-up tutorials. X-Pro II filters. Torture porn. Beheadings. We are through the looking glass here, and then some.' The Stage ★★★★
