“The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs”

Directed by Andrew Gallant

Feb. 24-26 and March 3-5, 2017


Called the ‘most notorious and controversial play of the decade,’ this unique look into the life of the man behind one of the most iconic brands of our generation is part gonzo journalism and part autobiography. Hilarious and razor sharp, writer Mike Daisey tells the story of his personal odyssey to the site of Apple’s factory in China, a captivating journey into the heart of technology and consumerism.

“The Tritonysia Play Festival”

Directed by Sommer Austin

May 5-7 and 12-14, 2017 

 The Tritonysia is Triton’s first annual short play festival, inspired by the ancient Greek festival the Dionysia, which honored the god Dionysus in many ways, including with a stage play contest. The Tritonysia closes out the VPC season with exciting new work, during which you will enjoy world premiere 10-minute pieces written by Triton College students, faculty and artists from the surrounding community. This will be a fun festival for fans of theatre, performance and creativity!
