Anthropos presents

Vonnegut, Vonnegut!


Who Am I This Time? and The Kid Nobody Could Handle
at Iona School on Tuesday 4th June 2019 at 7.30pm, in the Hall

Two stories by Kurt Vonnegut
A one-man play of two pieces by master American writer Kurt Vonnegut.
Performed by Glen Williamson.

Suitable for ages 11+

Tickets: £9/£7 conc.

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 humourless 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 theatre, 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.)

“Right on and totally hilarious. Williamson plays all the roles… brilliantly.” (Berkshire Bright Focus)

“Vonnegut is hard to resist, and. . . Glen Williamson. . . is a deeply perceptive, stylish, and affecting actor.” (New York Arts)

Thank you very much for joining in the celebration of International Women’s Day last Friday! 

Everyone loved having a waffle after school as a treat and thanks to your support we have managed to buy two beautiful books about great women in history for classes 3/4 and 5/6.
