A Bright New Boise
Silver Spring Stage
10145 Colesville Road Silver Spring
The Rapture is coming -- to a parking lot in Idaho. At least that's what Will, the central character of Samuel D. Hunter's prophetically funny play A Bright New Boise, has convinced himself. The piously religious Will recently moved from his small hometown after a bitter scandal that enveloped his evangelical church. Working to establish himself in Boise, Will finds himself toiling and searching with other minimum-wage employees at the Hobby Lobby, a big-box crafts store. Will tries to reconcile his ongoing mission for spiritual salvation with the superficial, secular and often profane world around him. A Bright New Boise is a humorous look at the search for meaning. This Obie Award-winning dark comedy of family dysfunction and enduring faith comes to the Silver Spring Stage.

"...While "A Bright New Boise" is not a happy-go-lucky type play with a fluffy fairy tale ending, it is a powerful though dark story that is deeply compelling with brilliant performances from the small cast. If you lean towards thought-provoking and slightly existential theatre, I highly recommend "A Bright New Boise" now playing at Silver Spring Stage."
