With a mix of fact and fiction, columbinus tells the story of the Columbine school shootings through the eyes of the teenagers involved. An all too timely drama, this documentary-style play uses text drawn from interviews, public records and the shooters' private diaries to illuminate the realities of modern adolescent culture. Since it premiere in D.C. and ran off-Broadway, columbinus has been updated to include new and revised scenes derived from more recent interviews with the survivors of the 1999 shooting, as well as victims' families and town residents. The original work was co-written by Stephen Karam, whose play Sons of the Prophet was a 2012 Pulitzer Prize finalist and the winner of numerous awards. Learn More

“_As a comedy of manners, Gurney’s play succeeds. If it’s martini-dry wit you crave, you’ll find it here.” —"_Boston Globe":http://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/theater-art/2013/11/21/stage-review-the-cocktail-hour/PUJ0Z7ma802zAw8S2baoPN/story.html
“The Huntington and director Maria Aitken do terrific work behind Gurney.” —WBUR
The pre-dinner cocktail is a revered ritual in John’s parents’ elegant home, but when he returns to announce that he has written a play about them, their calm demeanor dissolves. As the martinis flow, so do the revelations and recriminations, both funny and poignant, in this heartfelt comedy about the ties that bind.
