Littleton, Colorado. 1999. Two teenagers devastate a community and shock the country when they walk into their suburban high school and kill twelve students and one teacher. Based on interviews with teenagers across the country and survivors and community members in Littleton, this haunting drama takes a hard look at modern teenagers through the lens of the most infamous high school shooting in American history. Artistic Director PJ Paparelli returns to Littleton, CO ten years later to conduct new interviews and add additional material to what Variety described, “This one comes straight from the gut…highly theatrical and deeply disturbing.”
