    I saw this play at its first production, less than a week after the shooting at Virginia Tech -- at the time, the nation's worst mass shooting. The production was truly terrifying and, I suspect, still will be.

    I saw this play performed in Minneapolis at Safety Off, a production on gun control awareness and activism. It was probably the most uncomfortable play of the evening. While kids discuss football and regrets you hear shots of bullets, reminding you that anywhere, anytime violence can end someone's childhood. If you're producing an evening of gun control theatre, I highly recommend this poignant play. The ending will wreck you.

    This is certainly a tough play. I remember exactly where I was when I heard about the Virginia Tech Massacre - this play captures that horrible April day superbly. Great use of memory in the play. Smith's play is definitely a voice that needs to be heard now.
