Vernon God Little previews at the Young Vic Theatre
January 27, 2011
Vernon God Little
, featuring Luke Brady
, Johnnie Fiori
and Peter de Jersey
, opens for previews on the 27th of January at the Young Vic Theatre
. Directed by Rufus Norris
and adapted from DBC Pierre’s novel by Tanya Ronder
, the play will run until the 5th of March 2011.
When Vernon’s best friend massacres his school class and then shoots himself, people begin their search for someone to blame: and unfortunately for Vernon, the collective finger points at him. As Vernon makes a desperate escape to Mexico, the absurdities of life roll out as fast as the American hits that form the soundtrack to this darkly comic drama.
Fresh from playing the young lead role of Matt in 1960’s musical The Fantasticks
, Luke Brady takes on the part of Jesus, while Johnnie Fiori appears as Pam, and Peter de Jersey as Lally in this updated version of the Young Vic’s smash hit.
