A NIGHT OF VONNEGUT
The UUCA Performing Arts Coordinating Team presents A Night of Vonnegut, Saturday, October 14, at 7:30 PM. A small group of local actors will perform staged readings of the works of Kurt Vonnegut,Jr., featuring short stories from his posthumously published “Armageddon In Retrospect.” One of the most acclaimed American writers of the 20th Century, Vonnegut was a prisoner of war during WWII and witnessed first hand the aftermath of the Allied bombing of Dresden. In this collection of short stories, he writes of the absurdity and horror of war with a sense of moral outrage and dark humor. The readings will be directed by UUCA member Liz Bigler.
Doors open at 7:00 pm; performance 7:30-10pm. Suggested admission donation is $10, but no one will be turned away. Donations go to support UUCA. There will be a raffle for merchandise from the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library during intermission, and proceeds will benefit the ACLU, of which Vonnegut was a passionate supporter. Refreshments will be available. Please Note: Stories may contain adult content and language.
