Following the huge critical and popular success of their production of Martin McDonagh’s A Skull in Connemara last year, Decadent Theatre Company are back with another exciting, high-profile show.
Vernon Little lives in a flea-bitten Texan town, ‘the barbeque sauce capital of the state’, where his best friend has just massacred sixteen of his classmates. The town wants vengeance and turns its sights on the innocent Vernon who is arrested from the start of the story. As the saying goes – “when the going gets tough, the tough get going” – Vernon hits the road and flees to Mexico pursued by a media circus of outlandish proportions. Vernon God Little is a riotous, irreverent adventure with a fast-talking fifteen year old who cruelly ends up on a version of death row driven by the rules of reality TV.
