Performances of The Amish Project, a one-woman, off-Broadway play, which opened to favorable reviews several weeks ago, are going to be extended two weeks beyond the original closing date.

Written by and starring Jessica Dickey, the play features portrayals of fictional Amish characters involved in a mass murder of school girls—patterned, of course, on the tragic events of October 2006 in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania. The major theme of the play is the way the Amish community forgave the killer immediately.

Originally projected to close on June 28, the show will now continue until July 12. It is being performed at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, located at 224 Waverly Place in New York City. Tickets are available on the playhouse website or by calling (212) 868-4444.
