Gripping and powerful, Vigilante tells the shocking story of Johannah Donnelly and her six dangerous yet devoted sons. A riveting rock musical about family, forgiveness and frontier justice.
In association with the Citadel Theatre, and in collaboration with Canada’s National Arts Centre.

After a sold out run at the Grand Theatre in 2017, the fiery Donnelly clan returns to London for a three week run.
“Vigilante played to sold-out houses at the Grand two years ago, and London has inundated us with requests to bring it back. Let the music overtake you and the stories chill. The Donnellys return – careful what you wish for.” – Dennis Garnhum, Artistic Director, Grand Theatre
“Christenson plays with conventions of musical theatre to new and startling effect.”– Arts File, Ottawa
