40TH ANNIVERSARY REVIVAL! Sacred Fools closes its 20th season with a recently rediscovered adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s counterculture masterpiece. In 1977, genre maestro Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator: The Musical, Taste) adapted the novel for Chicago’s Organic Theater with the approval and input of Vonnegut himself. Sacred Fools is proud to present his stage adaptation for the first time in forty years, newly updated by Gordon and now more timely than ever. Director Ben Rock (Baal, Occupation) brings to the stage this visually dazzling and darkly humorous science fiction epic about what happens when the richest man in the world loses everything, sets out on an unbelievable journey through space and time, and discovers nothing less than the meaning of life.
