THE AMISH PROJECT by Jessica Dickey
Directed by Katrina Ploof

THE AMISH PROJECT was awarded BEST PLAY at the 2017 SETC Community Theatre Festival and will be representing the Southeastern United States at AACTFest 2017, the national festival in Rochester, MN, June 26–July 1, 2017.  

This production contains strong language and mature themes.

Death and Forgiveness at an Amish School

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.

Featuring an award-winning cast, including TWH favorites Larry Helms, Sara Catherine Barnes, Darian Henne, Chris Eubanks, and young but equally talented, Eva Martin and Grace Brixa.   Newcomer Cerriah Delgado will join the TWH veterans to round out the award-winning cast.
