The Amish Project


The Amish Project
By Jessica Dickey
Thursday, November 17 – Sunday, November 20
Proscenium Theatre

Directed by Joseph Ritsch

Conceived in the wake of the 2006 school shootings in the Amish community of Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, Jessica Dickey’s fictional exploration of a real-life tragedy allows us to glimpse into the world of Amish culture and to come to grips with the true limits of compassion and forgiveness. Praised by The New York Times as “extraordinary…remarkable…compelling,” The Amish Project is a devastating and beautiful exploration with an ensemble of performers conjuring several characters, from gunman to victims, that delves into the stories that tie these lives together, as well as the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in the midst of tragedy.
