November 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th in 2014.

This stage version of Slaughterhouse-Five faithfully retains the novel's pivotal moments… this is a pressure-cooker production, an intense, kaleidoscopic 90-minute tour without intermission through Vonnegut's nonlinear narrative

THE NEW YORK TIMES

The work is so involving… fans of Vonnegut should make tracks to see this one before it vanishes into the mists.

THE EPOCH TIMES

Purposeful and sharp direction, chameleonic actors, and a comprehensive adaptation of the novel make this experience existential, ethereal and cerebral.

NEW THEATRE CORPS.

Riveting, devastating…an uplifting production… go see Slaughterhouse-Five. It's remarkable theatre—cathartic, profound, and absolutely essential…

About Kurt Vonnegut
Kurt Vonnegut was an American science fiction and humour writer. Born in Indianapolis in 1922, Vonnegut studied chemistry in University while serving as an editor of his school’s newspaper. The outbreak of the Second World War interrupted his post-secondary education, and Vonnegut served as a mechanical engineer in the army. Vonnegut’s war experience, particularly his survival of the firebombing of Dresden in an underground meat locker in a building called “Slaughterhouse Five,” vastly influenced his later writing, as well as his turn to pacifism and humanism. His most famous works include Slaughterhouse Five, Cat’s Cradle and Breakfast of Champions. Vonnegut died in 2007 at the age of 84.
