KC Fringe "Amish Project" review by radziejeski

A World of Sadness
Rating: 5

Amish Project
KC Fringe Festival

I read this script a few months ago and really loved what the playwright did to integrate the various characters in  the story. I did not, however, think it was possible for  one person to adequately define each character for an  audience, particularly since the actor is directed to  wear only the clothing of the Amish people.  Jessica Franz proves me wrong. She made the people of  Nickel Mines come alive, each a distinct person with a  particular point of view. The story explores the human  reality, the truths behind the headlines of the  schoolhouse shooting in 2006, a story that unfortunately  plays out too often in our world.
