FEATURES / CONTAINS

Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Eliot Rosewater's a well intentioned idealist and philanthropic nut-- and as president of a multi million family foundation dispenses money to arcane and artsy crafty projects. He's also a World War II veteran with a guilt complex, haunted by all this wealth-- and also slightly crazy. His outlandish behavior enrages his senator dad, alienates his society conscious wife-- and the money attracts a young, shyster lawyer who tries to divert it to an obscure branch of the family. It portrays Vonnegut's vision of money, avarice and human behavior-- as it aims a satirical fusillade at plastic America, fast foods, trademarks, slogans, media blitzes and the follies of materialism.
"One of Vonnegut's most affecting and likable novels becomes an affecting and likable theatrical experience, with more inventiveness, cockeyed characters, high muzzle velocity dialogue and just plain energy that you get from the majority of playwrights.-- Newsweek.
