Slaughterhouse 5

Last weekend audiences came out and enjoyed performances by the Teen Repertory Company of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse 5 adapted by Eric Simonson at Oddfellows Playhouse. The production continues this weekend with performances tonight, Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm. Tickets are available online here or by calling 860-347-6143.

Slaughterhouse 5 tells the story of optometrist and veteran Billy Pilgrim who has become unstuck in time. His fate is decreed, and there is nothing he can do about it. Vonnegut's novel addresses the horrors of war as experienced during the firebombing of Dresden. With dark humor, Vonnegut challenges us to question our place in the universe, the role of fate vs. free will, and serves up a searing testament against the horrors of war. Join the Teen Rep as they take on this modern classic, first produced by the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
