Hailed as “an ambitious examination of the suburbanization of evil” (Washington Post), columbinus investigates the often-cruel realities of teen culture in America by exploring the events that led up to and consequently spurred one of the most notorious days in American history. The actions of Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris at Columbine High School in the final spring of the 20th century has left us with more questions than answers: how do two seemingly good boys from good families commit such an act? What are the environments we create in the school, in the house, and interpersonally, that allow these sort of terror attacks to happen? And how do we ask the right questions in order to prevent this from happening again? Can we prevent this from ever happening again? Begin to think about and explore the intersection between theatre and politics as we delve into one of the most challenging productions to ever come to Harvard’s campus.
