Night, cold, a bus stop in Kingston, New York. A woman waits. A boy walks up. 'Mr. Linklater writes tart, often friskily funny dialogue. All three characters are effectively drawn with sharp contours ... [Their] antagonism gives way to a growing sense of camaraderie in their mutual acceptance of life's sadness, and the long, inescapable shadow of mortality.' --"NY Times. 'Wistful?It's about the unbreakable bond between life and death and the little pleasures and huge hurts along the way ... Linklater could take the narrative anywhere. He leads it to the Twilight Zone.' --"NY Daily News. 'Intimate ... dryly funny ... [with] a final twist that lands halfway between O. Henry and M. Night Shyamalan.' --"NY Post.

Director's Message

The Vandal is the sort of work that the less you know going in -- the program only refers to its three characters as Man, Woman and Boy -– the more you can enjoy being taken along for the ride during its swiftly paced 70 minutes.

What you can know in advance is that Linklater smartly structures the show as a series of one-on-one encounters during a freezing night in Kingston, New York between a seemingly distraught woman and two very different men: an overly gregarious teenage boy she meets while waiting for a bus home from the local hospital, and the gruff owner of a nearby liquor store. No one, including the woman, is exactly who they initially claim to be, and not even the most experienced theatergoer will see all the twists and turns in advance.
