FACTORY 449 presents THE AMISH PROJECT by Jessica Dickey
COULD YOU FORGIVE THE UNFORGIVABLE?
At 10:25 a.m. on October 2, 2006, a gunman entered an Amish one-room schoolhouse in the Old Order Amish community of Nickel Mines, PA. Within the hour, 10 girls (ages 6-13) were shot, 5 were killed, and the gunman had committed suicide. What occured in the wake of this tragedy stunned the Nation.
THE AMISH PROJECT is an unforgettable account of the Nickel Mines shooting and its aftermath, seen through the eyes of 7 characters, brought to life by Helen Hayes Award Winner and Factory 449 company member Nanna Ingvarsson, and directed by Helen Hayes Award Winner Holly Twyford.
