PERFORMANCE: Vonnegut, Vonnegut!

PERFORMANCE: Vonnegut, Vonnegut!

A one-man play of two pieces by master American writer Kurt Vonnegut, performed by Glen Williamson.


In The Kid Nobody Could Handle, a trumpet and a pair of boots compete for the soul of a destructive teenager, as a kind and gregarious high school band teacher confronts a humourless foster father.

Who Am I This Time? is a wacky yet moving comedy about a small-town production of A Streetcar Named Desire. 
Celebrating the healing power of school bands and community theatre, this is Kurt Vonnegut at his most human and heartwarming. The great American writer’s hyperbolic narrative turns out to be wonderfully theatrical.
