Columbinus, a play about the school massacre in Columbine, Colo., is on stage at the Round House Theatre in Silver Spring, Md. The drama depicts the teen angst and disaffection that led to violence in an almost documentary style.

Columbinus was written by a collective called the United States Theatre Project, conceived and directed by PJ Paparelli.
