THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL

Adapted after Luis Buñuel

In this world-premiere stage adaptation of the iconic surrealist film from the 1960s, a group of dinner guests find themselves incapable of leaving the party, turning a festive few hours into harrowing days, weeks, and months. Imprisoned together, the foundational traditions and mores of human civilization begin to give way to a different form of order.

Vernal & Sere Theatre is delighted to make its return to the stage with The Exterminating Angel, a definitive thumb-in-the-nose to the stark reality we have all been living these past eighteen months. An elaborate, ensemble-based piece filled with the company’s characteristic use of movement, poetry, and media, this original adaptation hopes to build upon the legacy of the film by Luis Buñuel.

Featuring: Kathrine Barnes, Erin Boswell, Rebecca Botter, Kate Bryce, Patrick Conley, Barrett Doyle, Laura Edwards, Katerina Eichenberger, Brice Heller, Joseph Leitess, Erin O'Connor, Irene Polk, Megan Poole, Heather Rule, TJ Ruth, Chris Schulz, Mustapha Slack, Hailey Swartwout, Joe Sykes, Madelyn Wall, and Joseph Yang

Less-If-You-Need / More-If-You-Want:
We've had many people ask how they can do and give more in support of our work, our livelihoods, and keep the cost of tickets affordable to all regardless of income. During the current pandemic, this generosity is now more necessary than ever before. 

Keeping theatre accessible and sustainable is a core value of ours as well. To achieve that end, we are proud to offer this ticketing structure for our production of The Exterminating Angel.

We believe in a kind of pay-what-you-can ticketing model and are intent on working towards this within the Atlanta theatre scene. All tickets are available for either $25 or $50. You decide!
