tribute to the strength of community and the power of forgiveness.
The New York Times as “extraordinary,” The Amish Project is a devastating and beautiful
one-woman tour-de-force performance that compels us to question the paths we
take at the crossroads of grief, rage, and clemency. Inspired by the 2006
school shootings in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, this fictional account 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.
