Slaughterhouse Five ((Monash Uni Student Theatre, Theatre Works Melbourne, Australia) (review)

A theatrical adaptation of one of the most loved, important novels of the 20th Century.

This all happened, more or less. The war parts, anyway, are pretty much true. The aliens, spaceships, human zoo and assassination, perhaps less so. But there really was a city called Dresden and it really was firebombed during a war that was really fought by children. And Kurt Vonnegut Jnr really did witness all that fire and death as a prisoner of war. And he wrote a book about it. And award-winning playwright Fleur Kilpatrick really has adapted it for the stage to be performed by people no older than the ones we once sent to war.
