The Amish Project was originally presented in the New York International Fringe Festival in association with Nora Productions, and further developed and produced by Cherry Lane Theater, Angelina Fiordellisi, Artistic Director. World premiere produced by Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in association with Nora Productions.
As an actor- and community-centered ensemble-based theatre piece, The Amish Project is a powerful and timely play to present. Ongoing and increasing gun violence, including in communities, schools, and on college campuses throughout the U.S., continues to garner international attention. In August 2019, Amnesty International along with multiple foreign governments—Japan, Venezuela among others, issued a travel advisory warning to anyone traveling in the United States to exercise caution due to the high risk of gun violence. Now, 16 years after the schoolhouse shooting in Nickel Mines, the increasing numbers of mass-shootings in the United States remains topical and part of regular conversation around the globe.
