Chance Theater, Anaheim’s official resident theater company, is delighted to announce that we’ve added three performances of the West Coast Premiere of Hamish Linklater’s The Vandal, extending its run through October 27th. Directed by Kari Hayter, The Vandal will add performances on Friday, October 25th at 8pm; Saturday, October 26 at 3pm; and Sunday, October 27th at 3pm. All performances are on the Fyda-Mar Stage at the Bette Aitken theater arts Center.
Two strangers are waiting for the bus on a cold road at night… next to a cemetery. The bus is late. The woman’s coat is too thin. And this fast-talking teenager waiting at the same bus stop won’t leave her alone. He works hard to get her to talk to him, using everything from philosophical riffs to brash seduction. Just around the corner is a liquor store, whose owner is waiting for a special delivery. All three people have no idea what this fateful night holds in store… and that it may provide the answers they’ve all been looking for. Hamish Linklater’s funny and spooky debut play goes on a twisty journey exploring the important topics of life, death, and Doritos.
Recommended for ages 13 and up. Contains frequent use of adult language.

Myers (The Other Place), costume designer Elizabeth Cox (Violet), stage manager Jazmin Pollinger (Elevada), and resident artist Karen O’Hanlon is the Assistant Director. They are joined by dramaturg Morgan Green, who is making her Chance debut with this production.

For the added weekend of performances, Chance Theater founding artist, Casey Long, will be stepping into the role of “Man” due to Foran’s lack of availability.
