SHANARA SANDERS certified reviewer July 26, 2019
In the context of an all too familiar classroom gun hostage scenario, we are thrust into a jarring reality check of what it's like being a teen in urban America. Though you may initially root for the obvious protagonist(s), the deeper reflection is do you demonize or humanize the "apparent antagonist"? ... full review

The whole cast did a great job, particularly Luis García whose intensity and rage keeps everybody in the audience at the edge of our seats. Really intense and real. I need to recoup and remind myself that this was just a play ... full review

Gripping play that captures your attention from the start and holds it hostage the whole way through. Pierce’s story line quickly cuts to the heart of its characters, and what is exposed is intense and beautiful. ... full review

I don’t want to give too much away. It definitely reminded me of a very sinister Breakfast Club. This was both a jarring and endearing journey to a story that really helps you to understand the concept of Grace and Forgiveness on very deep levels.

Like one of those days you could never explain to anyone, but it happened. ... full review

I really enjoyed the show. It held my attention from the opening scene, and I was leaning forward in suspense the whole time. I highly recommend that you see it! ... full review
