40th Anniversary Revival
Written by Kurt Vonnegut
Adapted by Stuart Gordon
Directed by Ben Rock
Produced by Shaela Cook for Sacred Fools 2017
Associate produced by Bo Powell
Sacred Fools closes its 20th season with a recently rediscovered adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s counterculture masterpiece. In 1977, genre maestro Stuart Gordon adapted the novel for Chicago’s Organic Theater with the approval and input of Vonnegut himself. Sacred Fools is proud to present his stage adaptation for the first time in forty years, newly updated by Gordon and now more timely than ever. Director Ben Rock rings to the stage this visually dazzling and darkly humorous science fiction epic about what happens when the richest man in the world loses everything, sets out on an unbelievable journey through space and time, and discovers nothing less than the meaning of life.
