From "4/20/99: A Story of Columbine"
"The Trenchcoat" - Act 2 Scene 7
"4/20/99: A Story of Columbine" Is a full-length theatrical production that covers the before, during and aftermath events regarding the 1999 Columbine High School tragedy, a Foundation sponsored production that draws particular emphasis on the friends and family members of the two perpetrators.
Presenting a scene that has never been posted in its full form before, "The Trenchcoat." This scene will be making a comeback in our next run & draws particular emphasis on the overlooked trauma and grief of Nate Dykeman and the Klebold family. Based on the real-life phone call, Nate made to Thomas Klebold shortly after the massacre on April 20th.
The vulnerability and heartbreak of a twelfth grade survivor who was friends with Klebold, having to share the devastating news with Dylans father, expresses the suddenness and disorientation that the survivors and loved ones had to endure.
The viciousness and grief that Harris and Klebold bestowed onto Columbine not only affected Colorado but the entire nation.
The Columbine Memorial, lesser known perspectives, and never before told information, of how an hour long act of terror at a suburban high school, changed the world forever intertwine on this powerful production. Join us for an artistic and memorialized experience as we tell the stories of those involved, help to provide a better understanding around the subject matter, and shed light on the school shooting epidemic that we are currently experiencing.
