The Amish Project

Jessica Dickey's 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. In this stunning tour-de-force, a single actress plays a host of characters in a community devastated by tragedy. From a convenience store worker to the gunman himself, each character comes to life from trapped in cycles of grief or rage to those who have a truly unexpected reaction.
