Egg Farm

EGG FARM, Vitality's original two-man show, written and performed by Bill Heck and Nick Mills, directed by Wes Grantom, was shown at the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival. This was the first bi-coastal production between LA's VITALITY Productions and New York City's Slant Theatre Project, two production companies started by alumni from the University of Evansville Theater program.

Two actors: many people. Think Sweeney Todd meets Brecht meets YOU, set in a dark, funny, and bloody future. Come secure the success of humanity for only a small, one-time fee: YOUR LIFE.

Urban Remedy

Urban Remedy was an extreme success! Thanks to our loyal VP attendees we were able to raise over $1,500 to benefit our future documentary on the Equestrian Connection, a therapeutic riding center for the disabled.

 

The Receptionist

The Receptionist, a comedic fairy tale short written and directed by Nick Mills about red flowers, a boy named Coit and the future of pornography. The Receptionist, along with four other shorts by up and coming filmmakers, will have a screening the first week of May at the Regent Showcase Theater in a little town we like to call "Hollywood."

 

The Credeaux Canvas

Les Spindle of Backstage.com writes:

"When the sweetness of 20-something impetuousness meets the sobering reality of adult responsibilities, the rite of passage can be traumatic. Keith Bunin's witty and heart-rending play uses the notion of artifice in art as a metaphor for emotional self-delusion, as three close-knit young people learn about moral and social responsibility the hard way. The debuting Vitality Productions fashions a sensitive and tasteful rendition of this seriocomic piece. Director Carrie Preston and her fine ensemble peel off Kunin's rich layers of thematic musings with insight and style."

Evil Cheerleaders


Boys' Life

Les Spindle of Backstage.com writes:

"Howard Korder's 1988 dramedy about the libidinous growing pains of 20-something men feels like a descendant of the works of Jules Feiffer. Its string of boisterously played vignettes recalls the quick bursts of cynical humor in Feiffer's long-running magazine cartoons, while its caustic view of sexual politics stirs memories of Feiffer's screenplay for the 1971 film Carnal Knowledge, albeit in a softer vein. Though this Peter Pan-syndrome story boasts moments of hilarity and sharp insight, it hasn't fully stood the test of time. Nonetheless, director Bill Heck's revival provides a solid vehicle for an exceptional ensemble."
