What I liked

Crone artfully utilizes video and visual effects to expand Keith’s story in flashback and add characters that don’t appear onstage: a police interrogator (voiced by Billy Malone); Keith’s chemistry teacher (Varda Appleton); and his grandmother (Dolores Susan Merino). He also stages the siege in a stylized and highly dramatic manner.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

Invoking the Umpqua Community College shootings that took place last October in Oregon, Crone’s new drama is a tightly-wound piece that packs considerable emotion into its brief run time.
