Resolute Theatre Project Opens A BRIGHT NEW BOISE This Week!
This November, Resolute Theatre Project presents Samuel D. Hunter's comedic play, A BRIGHT NEW BOISE. Opening on Friday, November 2nd and running through Sunday, November 11th, A BRIGHT NEW BOISE takes the stage at Amy's Studio of Performing Arts (11888 Marsh Lane, Ste. 600, Dallas, TX 75234). All tickets are $18.00.
Directed by Danny Macchietto (L.I.P. Service's THE WHALE), the play takes place in the bleak, corporate break room of a craft store in Idaho, as someone is summoning The Rapture. Will, who has fled his rural hometown after a scandal at his Evangelical church, comes to the Hobby Lobby, not only for employment, but also to rekindle a relationship with Alex, his brooding teenage son, whom he gave up for adoption several years ago. Alex works there along with Leroy, his adopted brother and protector, and Anna, a hapless young woman who reads bland fiction but hopes for dramatic endings. As their manager, foul-mouthed Pauline, tries ceaselessly to find order (and profit) in the chaos of small business, these lost souls of the Hobby Lobby confront an unyielding world through the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith. Samuel D. Hunter's A Bright New Boise is an earnest comedy about the meager profits of modern faith.
The cast of A BRIGHT NEW BOISE is led by Steve Cave as Will, with Lindsey Hayward (Pauline), Ethan Armstrong (Alex), Celeste Perez (Anna) and Connor Wedgeworth (Leroy). Joining director Macchietto is Jessica Graham as stage manager, Brandon White as lighting & video designer, Joshua Hahlen and Danny Macchietto as sound designers, and Heather Macchietto as costume & prop designer. Amy Cave and Steve Cave produce.
