BCT Theater Lab to Present Two New Plays, SEASICK and GRANDVIEW, 11/7-9
Boise Contemporary Theater's education program, BCT Theater Lab, presents two new plays, SEASICK & GRANDVIEW written and performed by young artists of the Treasure Valley.
In SEASICK The Psychedelic Seagull embarks on its maiden psychiatric voyage for a 30-day trip-only to get stuck at sea. On this deranged cruise, unlimited therapy causes great harm, the captain loses his way and something lurks in the engine room. Who will make it to shore?
In GRANDVIEW, Lucy, a young blind woman, checks into the Grandview Hotel, and meets a writer who will change her life forever. Through his eyes, Lucy falls in love with the hotel and its colorful inhabitants. But there is an ominous presence shuffling in the dark and things may not be quite what they seem...
Written and conceived entirely by Theater Lab students (ages 12-18), these plays rocket past audience expectations, exploring the complexities of human relationships, perception, and trust all in a uniquely fresh, contemporary voice.
You can see both plays on the BCT stage, located at 9th and Fulton in Downtown Boise, November 7,8 & 9, at 7:00 PM. Tickets are available online at www.BCTheater.org or by calling the BCT box office at 331-9224 x 205. Tickets are $10 per person or $5 for students.
BCT Theater Lab provides students, ages twelve to eighteen, an opportunity to train with professional actors, designers and playwrights, in order to develop skills as artists, collaborators and communicators to tell stories that have never been told. Founded in 1997, BCT creates, produces, and presents vibrant and dynamic professional theater that illuminates enduring themes while exploring contemporary issues and ideas.
