A Bright New Boise at Aurora Theatre

An Obie award winner in 2011, the play is receiving a theatrically compelling, fierce and often funny Bay Area premiere at Aurora Theatre in Berkeley.

An apocalyptic strain of Christianity is central to protagonist Will's existence, yet he finds himself needing something more immediate and concrete to embrace: connection with his long-estranged son, Alex. The craving for a human bond followed the collapse of an evangelical cult where Will had worshipped until scandal brought it down.

Connecting and bonding are rare events in Will's abrasive world, however. Although he moves from the cult's rural roost in northern Idaho to relatively urban Boise and takes a minimum-wage job in the Hobby Lobby store where Alex works, open arms don't await him.

    Will we be purchasing tickets as a group? Or individually? If so, what name will the reservation be under or what area of the theatre will people be sitting?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
