With echoes of the distorted stories about victims Cassie Bernall (who was killed) and Valeen Schnurr that were propagated in the wake of the 1994 Columbine massacre, Scott Z. Burns's 2014 drama imagines a sophomore waking up wounded from one crisis to find herself in the crosshairs of another when questions about her relationship to the shooter as well as testimony from other students suggesting that she was forced to reveal other victims' hiding place make her a pariah. Clinical but wrenching, Burns’s script unfolds a Job-level tragedy all the more chilling for its increased plausibility in these times. The cast in this inaugural Level 11 Theatre production, directed by Logan Hulick, often swings broad, but there are some astutely captured moments here.
