A Bright New Boise

“Exhilarating…delicate and dark…mysterious and magnetic…a play that marches in the footsteps of Shepard’s acid comedies.” – Washington Post

Directed by Jill Harrison

“Surprisingly funny. Despite its crisp wind of despair A Bright New Boise will still lift your heart.”
– TimeOut New York

When a mysterious new hire arrives at the Boise Hobby Lobby the entire staff is forced to face its purpose at the store and beyond. A Bright New Boise, by 2011 Obie Award winning playwright Sam Hunter, invites us all to consider the necessity of faith in a life that is entirely unpredictable.
