Playwright Nicky Silver Takes On Vonnegut
The highly-acclaimed playwright Nicky Silver, best known for The Lyons and Pterodactyls, has taken on an editing position. The material? Eleven different versions of the late Kurt Vonnegut’s unpublished play, “Make Up Your Mind.” Silver adapted them, along with a trove of personal letters and writings, into a new version of the play that immerses the audience in Vonnegut’s imagination and singular view of the world. Kurt Vonnegut’s Make Up Your Mind is now making its world premier with the SpeakEasy Stage Company.
Nicky Silver, playwright.
