columbinus

Location: Diane Ballweg Theatre

By Stephen Karam and PJ Paparelli, Directed by Audrey Wax

The play, sparked by the April 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, is a meeting of fact and fiction that illuminates the realities of adolescent culture by exploring the events surrounding the shootings. It weaves together excerpts from parents, survivors, and community leaders in Littleton as well as police evidence to bring to light the dark recesses of American adolescence. 

This production uses haze, lighting effects, and gunshots. The script deals with powerful and disturbing messages and events in a docu-drama genre, including the use of racial epithets and offensive language. If you have questions regarding your own sensitivities or triggers, please contact a representative of Edgewood College Theatre.
