Montreal, Columbine, Sandy Hook, Parkland. Welcome to class 3B at Saint Joseph’s Elementary School. Your teacher, Miss Katelyn, knows the world is a dangerous place and her life-saving lesson is about to begin.

A HILARIOUSLY DARK AND TRAGICALLY RELEVANT PLAY: As the gun control debate rages and teenagers take to the streets in protest, Miss Katelyn’s Grade Threes Prepare for the Inevitable is a timely exploration of panic, prevention, and paranoia in a post-truth world. In the play, a well-intentioned school teacher conducts an unsanctioned presentation on how to survive a school shooting.

“This show earns its transformation from laughs to tears as it sinks its teeth into weight subject matter. By the end, Belyea has made us laugh, terrified us, and tugged at our heartstrings. An A+ show! ☆☆ ☆ ☆ ☆” – Edmonton’s Vue Weekly
“Belyea skillfully works the room, eliciting plenty of laughs but also a deep sense of anger and sadness.” – Montreal Gazette .
“Belyea is a brilliant dialogue writer.” – Calgary Herald

Entrance is by donation (PWYC). No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Hope to see you there!
