A Bright New Boise

A Utah premiere!

Winner of the 2011 Obie Award for Playwriting, Samuel D. Hunter’s A Bright New Boise is an unexpected dark comedy about faith, family and the importance of making human connections. In the break room of a Hobby Lobby craft store in Idaho, the seemingly innocuous Will applies for a job. No one knows he has recently fled his rural hometown after a scandalous tragedy involving his fundamentalist church. Will doesn’t particularly want to work there but he is a man on a mission – to bond with his estranged son before the impending Rapture. By enlisting the aid of his new co-workers, a group of eccentric characters also struggling to find their way, can Will succeed in winning the trust of his son before the end of the world?

The production opens Thursday, September 1st and runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays through September 17th. Performances are 8:00 p.m. in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center (138 West 300 South). There are also Saturday matinees on September 10th and 17th at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are $20.00 and are available at ArtTix (801-355-2787;www.arttix.org).
