SynopsisPart history, part time-traveling science-fiction, Slaughterhouse-Five is the satirical tale of Billy Pilgrim, a naïve American optometrist from Illium, New York, who survives the firebombing of Dresden, Germany by American and British troops during World War II. Back home, Pilgrim is kidnapped by aliens who instruct him in the nature of the fourth dimension, where time is an eternal present, and he brings this knowledge back to earth.
Adapter-director Eric Simonson, who wrote and directed Nomathemba and received a Tony Award nomination as best director for The Song of Jacob Zulu, returns to adapt Vonnegut's Sixties anti-war novel.
