Olympics Über Alles tells the story of the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, when Jewish-American runners Marty Glickman and Sam Stoller became victims of hate-mongering. As Jesse Owens made the news, Marty and Sam, on the same U.S. track team, seemingly went unnoticed, while American and Nazi officials apparently conspired to bar them from the race of their lives. Why were these two young men denied the opportunity to compete? Olympics Über Alles follows a Jewish professor and a Catholic museum curator who hope to answer that question, amid some murky Olympic history and the meaning of their own relationship. In this evocative new play, politics, religion, sports, relationships and the roots of World War II come face-to-face in a theatrical whirlwind that will challenge and inspire. Learn More
It was 10 years ago when the world watched as two young outcasts walked into their high school one afternoon and attempted to massacre hundreds of young people. Although failing in their original mission to kill 250 students, the two teens left twelve students and a teacher fatally wounded, and many others scarred for life. _
The Columbine Project_ examines exactly what went through the minds of several students including the killers. This drama also examines racism and homophobia within this high school, in particular, which was a major hidden subject behind those walls.
Writer/director Paul Storiale has spent six months researching and writing, moving beyond what has been public knowledge to include information gathered from interviews he has conducted with students who watched as the two boys plotted and attacked. Filled with monologues straight from diaries, and never-before-known information, this staged true story will provide insight to who these children were, and perhaps whose hands may share in the blood.
