OUR MANDATE

Dark Glass Theatre exists to tell stories that enable us to see, face to face, people we might not otherwise meet, thereby decreasing judgement, increasing compassion, and fostering empathy.

OUR CURRENT CAMPAIGN:

THE AMISH PROJECT by Jessica Dickey

A surprising story of radical forgiveness in the face of horrific tragedy

When a man walks into an Amish schoolhouse and shoots 10 girls, the world seems to stop. The stunned community must find a way to keep going, and their choice? Immediate and startling compassion.

Inspired by true events in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania in 2006, this powerful play explores the challenging path of forgiveness. At the centre of the story is Carol, the gunman's widow, who must not only wrestle with questions about the man she loved but with the outpouring of generosity from those most affected by the tragedy.

Originally produced by Rosebud Theatre, this production is thrillingly theatrical and heart-expandingly human. Dark Glass Theatre is pleased to be able to bring the show to Vancouver audiences following its sold-out Alberta run.

Starring Kelsey Krogman, Anna Dalgleish, Esther Koepnick, and Heidi MacDonald / Directed by Angela Konrad / Production Design by Robyn Ayles / Sound Design by Paul Zacharias.

February 20 - 23, 2019 @ 8 pm; February 21 & 23 @ 2 pm at The NEST aka Studio 1398, Granville Island

Each performance is followed by a talkback with the cast, moderated by a special guest.

We are immeasurably grateful for your assistance in bringing this important story to the stage.
