Nantucket company presents ‘Vandal’ premiere

Playwright Hamish Linklater (Art Streiber, CBS)

White Heron’ Theatre Company on Nantucket is presenting “The Vandal” through Sunday on the Dreamland Theater Main Stage. The show, according to information from the company, is the first production of the play, the writing debut of actor Hamish Linklater, outside of its New York premiere last year.

Shows continue at 7:30 tonight and 6 p.m. Sunday at the theater at 17 South Water St. Tickets are $25, with a $5 discount for Dreamland members and arts council members: dreamlandtickets.org.

The play is described as “a smart, funny look at life and death and the wonderful surprises life brings when we least expect them.” It’s set on a cold night in Kingston, N.Y. when a woman meets a boy at a bus stop, and the script explores the choices people make and the journey that comes after. Starring are Brandon Reilly, Brandy Zarle and Michael Kopko.

Linklater is a Broadway and TV actor most recognized for his current role as Andrew Keanelly on the CBC sitcom “The Crazy Ones” and for “The New Adventures of Old Christine.”

Half of the proceeds from the premiere benefit Nantucket Dreamland Foundation.

White Heron is a professional company that has announced plans for seven nights of entertainment this summer in a giant white tent being set up as a temporary home. As part of that plan, the group also announced this week that it is collaborating with the Nantucket Comedy Festival for theater performances on Monday nights, filling the gap between six nights a week of repertory programming.

Shows for the season and for the Monday night slots are due to be announced soon.
