The highlight of the play surely is the performance of Ethan Itzkow as 17-year-old Luke. Sweet, boyish and full of the curiosity and passion of youth, this is one young actor to keep an eye on

HIGH SCORE is a serious and important contribution to our ongoing public conversation about hate, racism, and demonization in America. In the course of a sizzling 15-minutes, in what is aptly described as a "social horror film," we are eyewitness to the combustible nature of these terrible forces...A superlative piece of film-making!
