About this show

This adaptation of a Kurt Vonnegut novel is a meta-theatrical tale of duplicitous spies, bumbling white supremacists, and an antihero who served "evil too well and good too secretly, the crime of our times," as Vonnegut put it. Mother Night is also a love story that imagines an idyllic "nation of two" as the only way to survive when the world has gone mad. In true Vonnegut fashion, Mother Night uses nonlinear storytelling to piece together Campbell's history and expertly fills in the jigsaw puzzle of a life that mirrors the great events of the last century — and those we are living through today. Seven cast members assume multiple roles in this existentialist epic.
