First Folio is proud to present a special two-night performance of one of the most moving projects we’ve ever produced. The Amish Project is a fictional exploration of the 2006 Nickel Mines schoolhouse shooting in an Amish community, and the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in its wake. This one-woman play, featuring artistic associate Lydia Berger Gray, explores the wake of this tragedy through the eyes of 7 different characters, ranging from one of the victims to the wife of the gunman. This timely and thought-provoking work is something not to be missed.
