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 and a bitter scandal that enveloped his evangelical church. Working to establish himself in Boise, Will finds himself working 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.

A very engaging story of a modern family with 2 lesbian women, a son with probably high functioning Asperger's, and a visiting photographer who specializes in taking pictures of nude women and pre-pubescent girls. Needless to say, the Body Awareness week being led by the feminist college professor does not go as planned with the artist's presence on campus and in their home. Excellent acting, clever use of small stage and props, serious modern topics with plenty of comedic moments dealing with intimate and potential relationships and views by ourselves and others of our bodies. Highly recommend it to all!
Body Awareness is being produced as the fully-staged anchor production in The Global Age Project (GAP), an Aurora Theatre Company initiative that encourages playwrights and directors to explore life in the 21st century and beyond. In addition, several new plays dealing with global age concerns will be chosen from an international pool of playwrights and presented in a series of developmental readings during the run of Body Awareness.
