The Amish Project

“Extraordinary….compelling…the play is a remarkable piece of writing.” (The New York Times.)
Clarice Eckford (Sterling nominated for The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble) stars in The Amish Project by Jessica Dickey, a fictional fictional exploration of the tragic events of the Nickel Mines, PA shooting in 2006, when a local man walked into an Amish schoolhouse, took the female students hostage and shot ten of them. The play, partly based on interviews with the community, is about recovering from the worse events we can imagine and offering forgiveness. It contains mature content and strong language. The production is directed by Amy DeFelice and Stage Managed by Nathaniel Vance Hehir.
The Amish Project plays at Stage 8: Old Strathcona Performing Arts Centre (8426 Gateway Boulevard)
