    This one-minute play about how active shooter drills have become a routine part of school life is powerful and infuriating. It says so much with so little - the mark of a successful one-minute play.

    As a non-American, this still feels so alien to me, but the bored acceptance that these students and educator display as they endure yet another active shooter drill in their school really brings home just how this horror has pervaded the lives of youth today. The impact of this weary readiness is far-reaching, and deeply saddening. A well-executed point, made efficiently.

    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 The joys of childhood have been replaced by a constant fear for safety.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.
