RAGE – In this tense, one-act, Canadian play, an unstable high-school student confronts a pacifistic guidence councelor in her claustrophobic office at the school. During their increasingly heated conversation a gun is produced, and their encounter becomes a battle of wills.  Will “justifiable” violence or passive resistance win the day?  Who will survive?
