Shumiatcher Sandbox Series
By Michele Riml
Directed By Andrew North
Globe Theatre acknowledges Drs. Morris & Jacqui Shumiatcher for their generous donation, which enables the bold, imaginative traditions of the series to grow and develop.
A high school office, a teacher and a student, and a loaded gun. These are the tense ingredients of a riveting work by playwright Michele Riml. Raymond, or Rage as he likes to call himself, is a violent student. Laura, on the other hand is a guidance counsellor, well known for her pacifism. When Laura calls Rage into her office to account for his recent bad behaviour, she suddenly finds herself facing a life or death situation, and a gut-wrenching dilemma. There is a way out, but it may mean going against everything she believes. This intense drama ponders what makes a radical and what makes a pacifist. With your life hanging in the balance, how would you react?
