When tragedy hits it affects so many – even those outside of the community it happened to. People you wouldn’t even of caring, do, and oftentimes deeply. This show deals with the events of the 2006 shooting of ten Amish schoolgirls and what it did to all those who didn’t die that day.
This has to be one of the most profound pieces at this year’s fringe festival. If you’re looking for a though provoking show that will challenge your perception of family, the Amish, national tragedy, race, grief, and forgiveness then this is a must-see. This production so well written, performed, and directed, that you forget it’s Carmel High School’s drama that put it on. And it’s remarkable through and through.
