Custom Made Theatre presents Artistic Director Brian Katz’s adaptation of Vonnegut’s third and highly celebrated novel, "Mother Night." It's a meta-theatrical tale of duplicitous spies, bumbling white supremacists, and an anti-hero that served "evil too well and good too secretly, the crime of our times,” writes author Vonnegut. "Mother Night" is also a love story, which fantasizes an idyllic “nation of two” as the only way to survive when the world has gone mad.
In true Vonnegut fashion, Mother Night uses non-linear 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 ones we are living with today. A cast of seven assume multiple roles in this epic, existentialist story.
