Theatre Review: This adaptation of Vernon God Little was the latest production from the prolific performing arts department at the Henley College.
The play tells the story of an American teenager who is accused of being involved in a shooting at the local high school.
Inspired by real life events, the play uses Vernon’s predicament to take satirical swipes at American society, most notably the media and its insatiable appetite for its next sensationalist headline, regardless of the human cost.
As repair-man-turned-anchorman, Perry Williams gave the stand-out performance of the night providing the perfect balance of charm and sleaze required to convince in the role.
Lewis Jenkins also gave a commendable performance in the title role, and managed to imbue Vernon with the necessary sensitivity to win over the audience.
