Presented by the Theater Company of Lafayette through February 29th. “This is a simple-minded play about men who enjoy killing things, and those who don’t.” Or that is what playwright, Kurt Vonnegut himself would have you think at the opening of his play. Happy Birthday, Wanda June tells the story of Penelope Ryan and her son Paul when her husband Harold Ryan, an adventurer and war hero, returns home after being presumed dead with his friend Col. Harper, who dropped the bomb on Nagasaki. Penelope had been dating two men, Dr. Woodley and Herb Shuttle, who are both very different from her husband. The characters humorously navigate Harold’s return and issues of masculinity with interjections from dead characters (the ten year old Wanda June, a Nazi war criminal, and Harold’s ex-wife) in heaven. With a cast full of veterans to the Theater Company of Lafayette’s stage and newcomers alike, this multi-generational cast, from ages 12 to the 60s, embraces the literary giant Kurt Vonnegut’s only play.
