 WELCOME TO THE MONKEY HOUSE
 
written by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

directed by Ron Hill
 
One of Americas best known writers, Time Magazine describes Kurt Vonnegut as "...a zany but moral mad scientist at the controls of a literary time machine... He is George Orwell, Dr.Caligari and Flash Gordon compounded into one writer. Though Vonnegut often knocks a misplaced sense of values by showing the horrifying results, he's doing it with an irreverent chuckle."

Welcome to the Monkey House is a collection of Vonnegut's edgiest short stories; lovingly adapted to the stage. It's theatrical excitement comes from the brilliant words and dazzling display of original ideas.

You loved our groundbreaking presentation of Vonnegiut's Happy Birthday, Wanda June, and we know youll also love this thought provoking evening of short plays.
