The Queensland Conservatorium 3rd year actors present their final play, a darkly riotous, superbly fast-talking adventure. Adapted from the Booker Prize-winning novel, Ronder’s Vernon God Little was nominated for the 2007 Olivier Award for Best New Play.

Vernon Little is fifteen years old and lives with his mother in Martirio, a flea-bitten Texan town. His best friend just massacred sixteen of their classmates before killing himself. The town wants vengeance and turns its sights on Vernon, who is arrested at the start of the story.

Trigger warning: contains coarse language, sensitive content and references to suicide which may be triggering for some people.
