I've had in a long time,entirely driven by its subject which the excellent
cast,director and 2 playwrights have internalized and have found

Artists with the United States Theatre Project conducted exhaustive interviews and research in order to create this two-part piece that first sets up a fictional but realistic world of adolescence that could be anywhere in America, and then morphs into the factual events leading directly to the school shootings at Columbine. Ultimately, Columbinus asks more than just “Why?”, but perhaps more importantly, “Why do people treat each other the way we do?” Reminiscent of Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project’s The Laramie Project, Columbinus is a fascinating and heartbreaking examination of human behavior.
By the United States Theatre Project, written by Stephen Karam and PJ Paparelli
