A one-man play of two pieces by master American writer Kurt Vonnegut.
In The Kid Nobody Could Handle, a trumpet and a pair of boots compete for the soul of a destructive teenager, as a kind and gregarious high school band teacher confronts a humorless foster father. Who Am I This Time? is a wacky yet moving comedy about a small-town production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
Celebrating the healing power of school bands and community theater, this is Kurt Vonnegut at his most human and heartwarming. The great American writer’s hyperbolic narrative turns out to be wonderfully theatrical.
(Ninety minutes including an intermission; each story runs about 40 min. and can also be booked separately.)
