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
