Fresno Bee Q&A with director Heather Parish

Fresno Bee Review of The Amish Project

Called “a remarkable piece of writing” by The New York Times and “unique, uplifting, and unforgettable” by Chicago Theatre Beat, THE AMISH PROJECT is a powerful and poetic piece inspired by the 2006 killing of five girls in a hostage-taking at an Amish school in Pennsylvania. One actress (Kristin Lyn Crase) conjures seven characters, from gunman to community members, to victims and family, and delves into how communities are indelibly tied together in such a crisis, as well as how forgiveness and compassion are forged in the wake of tragedy.

Performed by Kristin Lyn Crase. Directed by Heather Parish.

November 6 – 21, 2015
at The Voice Shop in Fresno’s Tower District.
