SOCIETY HILL PLAYHOUSE, 2011
WALNUT STREET STUDIO THEATRE, 2013
A gripping and incisive exploration of the 2006 Nickel Mines schoolhouse shooting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, that quickly polarized the nation, united a community and forged an unexpected path of compassion and forgiveness in its wake. Imbued with great poetry and surprising humor, this seven-character, one-woman show investigates a divided community’s attempts to reconcile crushing loss and tested faiths in spite of a sea of cultural differences.
