On April 20, 1999, two suicidal students walked into Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. What happened next is history. What happened before is what our eight talented actors are here to explore.

Sparked by the April 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., columbinus is a meeting of fact and fiction that explores the events surrounding the shootings. The play weaves together excerpts from discussions with parents, survivors and community leaders in Littleton as well as police evidence to bring to light the dark recesses of American adolescence. Winner of five Helen Hayes Award nominations including the Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Play, columbinus will challenge how and what you think— and feel.
