In 2006, shots are fired in an Amish school house in Nickel Mines Pennsylvania, and the world seems to stop. A stunned community must find a way to keep going, and their choice? Radical kindness. The Amish Project is a courageous look at the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in the wake of horrible tragedy.
We're a theatre whose mandate is to explore the power of grace in our world. This is one such story. How do we experience grief and choose to forgive? In October of 2006, an Amish community in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania chose to extend grace in the wake of unimaginable tragedy. The power of their story haunts me. I think it might be the most inspiring play in our season.
