Harold became a famous artist by having a friend shoot him in the arm in a gallery. Today, Harold has a house, a child, and a tenure-track teaching job. Who is he to tell a student not to bring a gun to class? Inspired by the provocative career of conceptual artist Chris Burden, I Want to Destroy You asks troubling questions about ethics, education, class, meaning, violence, middle age and roofing. (This work was commissioned by Theatre Vertigo.)
