Since Kurt Vonnegut (1922 – 2007), the author of “Slaughterhouse-Five,” would have been 100 this year, East Lynne Theater Company is celebrating the occasion by offering three of his charming stories about love. Adapted by Aaron Posner, these humorous tales filled with heart take place in North Crawford, Connecticut in 1962.
In “Long Walk to Forever,” a soldier goes AWOL so he can hitchhike home to talk his childhood sweetheart out of marrying the wrong man. A new woman in town falls in love with a terribly shy man when she performs opposite him in the community theater production of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” in “Who Am I This Time?” In “Go Back to Your Precious Wife and Son,” a writer realizes that his marriage to a film star can be difficult.
The play is directed by Gayle Stahlhuth.
The cast: Nathan Garcia, Veronique Hurley, Mat Labotka, Mark Edward Lang, Andrew Lofredo, Liz Mattera, Alison J. Murphy, and Gayle Stahlhuth
