Sarah Cameron Sunde directs the solo show written and performed by Dickey. Performances began June 4 for a run slated through June 28. Rattlestick presents Amish Project in association with Nora Productions. "A fictional exploration of true events," as billed by show notes, "The Amish Project is the story of a schoolhouse shooting in an Amish community, and the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in its wake." The show was previously seen in the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival and workshopped at the Cherry Lane Theatre.

The design team includes Lauren Helpern (sets and costumes), Nicole Pearce (lights) and Jill BC DuBoff (sound). Kelly Shaffer serves as production stage manager.

Rattlestick's recent season included Craig Wright's Lady, Stephen Belber's Geometry of Fire and Sheila Callaghan's That Pretty Pretty; or, The Rape Play.

Tickets to The Amish Project at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, 224 Waverly Place (between West 11th and Perry Streets), are available by calling (212) 868-4444. For more information visit Rattlestick.org.
