    A vivid snapshot of the things our children can no longer see. The joys of childhood have been replaced by a constant fear for safety. Well done.

    A sad and powerful reminder that the victims of gun violence aren't just those hurt in these all-too common massacres, but the bystanders to horror: Our children, and their teachers. A generation is growing up under the threat of armed assailants in their places of learning, and Kaplan's beautiful short play expresses a teacher's grief, for his students' innocence, and our collective humanity.

    The aftermath of mass shootings is immediate, catastrophic loss. But there is insidious loss, too. Kaplan's short play shows this with its focus on tone, action, and coincidence. Very well written.
