THE AMISH PROJECT

by Jessica Dickey

Black Box Theater
MAR 7-22/2015

Called “a remarkable piece of writing” by The New York Times and “unique, uplifting, and unforgettable” by Chicago Theatre Beat, this powerful and poetic piece is inspired by the 2006 killing of five girls in a hostage-taking at an Amish school in Pennsylvania. This one-woman exploration of the Nickel Mines shooting conjures seven characters, from gunman to victims, and delves into the stories that tie these characters together, as well as the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in the wake of tragedy. “It’s my private prayer,” writer Jessica Dickey says, “that this play, should they ever know about it, would not hurt them further, but somehow honor the goodness they forged in the face of such tragedy.”
