Reader Clint Carlson responds to Tread lightly when putting white kids in Klan robes for a play:

I don't have a problem with throwing the KKK, Hitler or abortion into a comedy. Part of comedy's role in society is to bring those issues to light in a way that allows discussion without fear and hate.

That said, these topics have to be handled with very capable, skilled actors and I think that a high school taking it on is a bit of a stretch.
