"Happy Birthday Wanda June" presented by Will Kempe's Players

In his first published play, Kurt Vonnegut finds a powerful vehicle for his tragicomical imagination. When the great hunter Harold Ryan–missing and presumed dead–returns from South America after eight years, his wife is aghast and his son is enchanted. Happy Birthday Wanda June is a play about expectations vs. reality, ideas of masculinity, and what it means to be a hero.

**This production does have mature language, and descriptions of sexual acts.
