The cast includes: Jim Douglas, Joe Andrews, Jason Czernich, Marie Daley, Gwen O'Brien, Josh Pelletier, Lisa Provost, Joe Sawyer, and Ashleigh Soper.
THE STORY: The play is based on three short stories from Kurt Vonnegut's book, "Welcome to the Monkey House". They are three of his early comic masterpieces: "Long Walk to Forever", "Who Am I This Time?” and "Go Back to Your Precious Wife and Son". Playwright Aaron Posner has taken these stories and weaved them into a charming and amusing look at love.
The subject of this play—as we are told at the outset—is love, pure and complicated. Set on the stage of The North Crawford Mask & Wig Club ("the finest community theatre in central Connecticut!"), the three stories are sewn together into a seamless evening of hilarity and humanity. With a single set, and Vonnegut's singular wit and insight into human foibles, this is a smart, delightful comedy for the whole family.
