The characters of Abi Morgan's SPLENDOUR sip cold chili vodka throughout the play, an intense contrast of fire and ice that fits the themes of the play and echoes the snow falling on the political upheaval outside. Chili vodka is easy to make by infusing a bottle of vodka for a week or so with fresh chili peppers (slice & remove the seeds first), and is delicious in a variety of cocktails -- or drink it on ice if a revolution seems imminent! Reserve your seats to SPLENDOUR at 510.843.4822 or auroratheatre.org

It's a puzzle of a play and we hope you'll enjoy turning it over in your heart and your mind, and gaining new perspectives as the story unfolds. SPLENDOUR previews Tuesday and Wednesday, and opens Thursday.
