Rave: Bullet for Adolf

Close your eyes. 

Think back to summertime and your favourite memories: hanging out with your best friends, staying up late telling stories, enjoying the warm weather. Summer always comes jam-packed with reflection, and other people’s stories are often just as interesting and inspiring as your own.

Woody Harrelson is bringing some of his personal summer memories to Toronto’s Hart House Theatre in his highly anticipated play, Bullet For Adolph – Almost A Comedy. The actor co-wrote the play and is in the city directing the show (previews today and tomorrow, and officially opening Thursday, April 21 through Saturday, May 7).

The play brings together a group of friends in the hot summer of 1983, in Houston, Texas.  The lives of eight people come together in unexpected ways during this memorable summer. The title refers to a gun once intended to kill Hitler, which plays a pivotal role in the plot.

Harrelson co-wrote the play with his friend of almost 30 years, Frankie Hyman. The two say the plot was inspired by their financially strapped days working construction together that same summer of ’83. The eight characters in the play are inspired by real people they knew.

To read an interview with Harrelson and his amazing Toronto cast, check out this story. Plus, Woody chatted with Rick Campinelli on ET Canada – watch it here if you missed it the first time. (He also does a little a cappella version of Happy Birthday – a must-see.)

Tickets are on sale now. And, find Bullet For Adolph on Facebook and Twitter.
