“A trauma at once familiar and unimaginable…”

Set in an anonymous suburban enclave, Eric LaRue concerns the struggle of Janice, a mother coming to terms with a high school shooting spree perpetrated by her son.

“Under Ann Filmer’s fierce, unvarnished direction, the actors turn in such blistering, uncompromising performances… particularly (Kate) Buddeke who is giving what is unquestionably the most moving, tightly restrained and brilliantly implosive performance of her career…Highly Recommended
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

“Harrowing and exhilarating…Filmer makes it feel as though there’s no oxygen left in the room…riveting, carefully nuanced performances…Highly Recommended
Justin Hayford, Chicago Reader
