Vernon God Little

★ Nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Play
The Young Vic , 2007 Director Rufus Norris Writer Tanya Ronder Starring Lorraine Bruce, Mariah Gale, Mark Lockyer, Colin Morgan & Joanna Scanlan

A stage adaptation of DBC Pierre's Booker Prize winning black comedy, which premiered at The Young Vic in 2007 where it is being revived as part of the theatre's anniversary season in 2011. The original production was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Play.

Vernon’s best friend has just mown down his school class Columbine style – and then shot himself. Everyone is looking for someone to blame – and they’re pointing the finger at Vernon!

Hapless, cynical and gloriously unlucky, Vernon makes a desperate escape to Mexico. As the cowboy music starts to play, the absurdities of life just keep on coming…

Tanya Ronder's adaptation of DBC Pierre's Man Booker prize-winner captures much of the zest and sting of the original

Michael Billington The Guardian

no one with any taste...would want to bale out early from Tany Ronder's clever, fluent and highly enjoyable theatrical adaptation. ****

Paul Taylor The Independent

If ever there was an answer to the criticism that theatre is moribund and middle aged, then this production is it. Full of youthful bile and brutal satire, the show zips through
