Incident at VichyFINAL WEEKEND: Incident at Vichy

October 24 to November 4  | Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse

UW School of Drama’s season opener is a production that the New York Times considered “one of the most important plays of our time” in 1964. The questions at the heart of this story—about evil, complicity, self-preservation, and the death of human decency—are perhaps more resonant now than at any time since that first production. Guest Director Kelly Kitchens, who is well-known to local audiences for her work at Seattle Shakespeare Company and Seattle Public Theater, among others, directs an all-male cast.
