By Aaron Posner. Adapted from short stories by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
Built from stories in Vonnegut’s brilliant collection ‘Welcome to the Monkey House’, this slice of Americana is a favorite of mine. This is very early Vonnegut, when he was still putting very sweet coatings on only slightly bitter pills. The darkness lurks in the distance, but in these sweet, sad, hopeful stories it is mostly all wholesome fun and gentle, heartfelt wisdom.
“The show is really enjoyable. Warm, wise, engaging...”
