 One bright, blue fall afternoon a shooter walks in Three Roads High School and kills five students and two adults. During the shooting, students in one section of the school put up a makeshift barrier of desks, chairs, music stands -- and a photo of the wall goes viral. In the hours, weeks and months after the wake of another tragedy, students and teachers deal with grief, the media frenzy and uncomfortable scrutiny that comes along with this horrible violent event that’s become all too common in America.  (Full-length version also available.)

  • I was wondering why I can't seem to get a preview of "The After" by Werner Trieschmann. I am considering this piece for production, but would like to see a little bit of it before I fully commit. Thanks.

    Hello Carter! Thanks for your interest in The After. As the play isn't published yet, the script isn't available to read online. But we'd be happy to send you a pre-publication copy for perusal. Please contact us at
