Play about Columbine shooting to open in New York
NEW YORK - A play about the Columbine High School massacre from the perspective of the two teen shooters will make its world premiere in New York next month, written by a playwright who was 9 at the time of the killings and calls it "a watershed moment."
Nathaniel Sam Shapiro's "The Erlkings" will begin performances on Nov. 9 at Theatre Row's Beckett Theatre. The play takes its title from a German poem found in a journal of one of the killers.
Eighteen-year-old Eric Harris and 17-year-old Dylan Klebold opened fire at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, killing 12 classmates and a teacher and wounding two dozen others before killing themselves in the school's library in 1999.
