|Description||Tickets go on sale February 28! Performances are March 21-25 at 7:30pm; March 25-26 at 2:00pm -- Written in the aftermath of the 2006 Amish schoolhouse shootings in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, The Amish Project is a fictional exploration of a real-life tragedy and the path of forgiveness forged in its wake. Hailed by The New York Times as "extraordinary," and Chicago Theatre Beat as "unique, uplifting, and unforgettable," The Amish Project is a devastating and beautiful piece of theatre that compels us to question our notions of suffering, compassion, and forgiveness.
Director John-Michael Marrs comments on the production, saying: "This is one of those stories that both challenges audiences and offers tremendous hope. Though the subject and content are difficult at times, the message is one of extraordinary redemption, forgiveness, and grace. Especially at a time of such division, it's a special and important piece."
The director and members of the cast will host a talk-back following each performance. Due to adult language and content, this play is intended for mature audiences.
