This world premiere movement-theatre work interpreting the 2006 Amish schoolhouse shooting during which five young girls were killed, followed by the shooter's suicide. This piece deals with the epidemic of school shootings in America, the divisive topics of gun control and mental illness, and the media's sensationalist hunger for these kinds of events. Most importantly, the play illustrates the Amish people's choice to forgive rather than condemn.
