The Amish Project

April 13 -30, 2017

Green Light Arts presents a remount of their 2014 critically acclaimed production, The Amish Project, for a limited run in three separate Ontario cities: Kitchener, Hamilton, and St. Jacobs.

1. The Registry Theatre in Kitchener, ON from April 13-16, 2017
2. The Staircase Theatre in Hamilton, ON from April 20-23, 2017
3. St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre in St. Jacobs from April 26-30, 2017

The Amish Project is a fictional exploration of the 2006 Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania Amish schoolhouse shooting and the journey of forgiveness and compassion forged in its wake.

"The Amish Project Agonizingly Good... Amy Keating is simply mesmerizing" -- Valerie Hill, Waterloo Region Record, Oct 2/14

"All I know is that I left the theatre feeling like life is strange and confusing and ridiculously beautiful all at once… Amy Keating, blew my mind." -- Katie Parkes, Grand Social, Sept 25/14


Carole Stuckey is trying to figure out how to put her life back together after her husband Eddie opens fire on a schoolhouse full of Amish girls, killing five and paralyzing one, before taking his own life. She feels her 'whole being is a rotting grave' until a remarkable thing happens: the Amish community reaches out to her. They forgive her late husband. They bring her food and sit with her. Together they work to find the strength to carry on.

Playwright Jessica Dickey offers a focused meditation on the quality of mercy as it impacts an imagined cross-section of the Pennsylvania town. This work helps guide an audience to understand, even slightly, how the choice to forgive is possible.

Actress Amy Keating returns in this tour de force performance where she plays multiple roles including the gunman, his widow, two of the young Amish victims and a pregnant Hispanic girl.
