What I liked

Concept, cast, writing, Staging.

What I didn't like

The only thing possible to mention is the definite opportunity to solidify the message in an understandably sensitive issue. In wanting to create an understandable distance, there’s the chance to give the impression that we’re not acknowledging the humanity of subject.

My overall impression

A viciously biting satire of the horrifying prospect of weaponizing teachers, Jordan Maverick walks the tightrope of comedy on this subject. Make no mistake, however, they’re not calmly walking across that rope, these outrageous performers and shaking that rope wildly and the results are disarming and entirely enjoyable. Kudos to Ryan Gowland, JJ Mayes, Sacred Fools and the entire cast.
