A Bright New Boise

October 12-28, 2012

Samuel D. Hunter’s A Bright New Boise is an earnest comedy about the meager profits of modern faith. In the bleak, corporate breakroom of a craft store in Idaho, 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 sould of the Hobby Lobby confront an unyielding world thorugh the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith.
