Cardinal Stage presents an evening of dramatic adaptations of Kurt Vonnegut’s short stories from Welcome to the Monkey House in partnership with the 2019 Granfalloon Festival presented by the IU Arts & Humanities Council. Staged readings will include “Epicac” (adapted by Vonnegut) and “Report on the Barnhouse Effect” (adapted by Claris A. Ross for NBC radio), which speak to Vonnegut’s wariness of the military industrial complex and the unintended consequences of technological advancement. Each performance will be immediately followed by a short panel discussion with Vonnegut experts.
Granfalloon Festival Music Passes can not be used to redeem tickets to this special add-on event. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door for each performance, by cash or credit card. Attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance as capacity crowds are expected.
Doors open 30 minutes prior to showtime and this event is expected to last 90 minutes. Any tickets not picked up in advance at the BCT Box Office will be available at the door.
