OBIE Award winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter’s A PERMANENT IMAGE thought provoking play is extending through February 25, 2024.

 

Those traditionally joyous and colorful holidays are approaching and members of an estranged family from a small town in Idaho gather to bury the family patriarch. Siblings Bo and Ally are stunned to see how their childhood home has been "decorated" for the occasion. When Mom delivers a surprising twist, we start to see a method behind this madness.

 

A fusion between realism and the absurd, A Permanent Image is an intensive comedic and dramatic exploration of the distance families put between themselves, and what it takes to bring them back together.

 

Hunter’s plays have a recurring idea about the human experience and connection through love and isolation filtered through the perspective of various characters living in Idaho where Hunter was born and raised.

 

Directed by Andrew Weyman, the cast includes Phil Cass (Martin), Terry Davis (Carol), Scott Jackson (Bo), Dalia Vosylius (Ally)

Nestled uneasily in a space between comedy and misery, SUKKOT makes shoddy use of a good cast to serve up a banquet of familial angst and misery.

Review: A PERMANENT IMAGE at Pacific Resident Theatre

The production directed by Andy Weyman for Pacific Resident Theatre taps the bile and makes use of Hunter’s scabrous humor. The journey to that resolution is an uncomfortable slog in which we share the company of some pretty despicable people who, at PRT, are portrayed by actors who embrace their characters’ meanness and little else.
