Street Corner Arts proudly presents POCATELLO by Samuel D. Hunter playing at Hyde Park Theatre from December 1 thru December 16. SCA is extremely proud to be showcasing its first production by this celebrated playwright, recipient of the prestigious 2011 Obie Award for THE WHALE, and the 2013 Drama Desk Award and Lucille Lortell Award for Outstanding Play for A BRIGHT, NEW BOISE. He is also the recipient of a 2014 MacArthur Fellowship.
It is Famiglia Week at Eddie’s failing Italian restaurant in the equally failing town of Pocatello. And what’s Famiglia Week without some family, right? After all, Eddie isn’t the type to just give up on his restaurant, his town or his kin, even though they all need some fixing. Somehow he has wrangled them all together, along with co-worker Troy’s family, in a last ditch attempt to stave off the inevitable and maybe take care of some unfinished business. What could possibly go wrong?
Starring Carlo Lorenzo Garcia, Jeremy Brown, Amber Quick, Sydney Huddleston, Joel Gross, Molly Fonseca, Chris Humphrey, Kayla Newman, David Scott and the one and only Ev Lunning. Lighting and set painting by Chris Conard and costume design by Aaron Flynn. Directed by Benjamin Wallace Summers (WAITING FOR LEFTY, THE ALTRUISTS, BULL).
"Pocatello is one of those rare dramas that had me often guffawing before tearing up. With emotion as rich and palpable as the passion poured into the production, the team at Street Corner Arts has a real hit on their hands." - Austin Chronicle
