Seen for the first time on the West Coast, OBIE Award winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter’s A BRIGHT NEW BOISE (Drama Desk Award nomination) will be presented at Rogue Machine as the final offering for their main stage 2012 season. It will include an award-winning cast.

In the corporate break room 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 for employment and to rekindle a relationship with his brooding teenage son whom he gave up for adoption. These comedic misfits assemble and confront an unyielding world through the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith.

"Nothing is pretty about A Bright New Boise, a play that marches in the footsteps of Sam Shepard’s acid comedies, set in the weird American West...Hunter has such highly sensitive antennae for the look and rhythm of mundane places that A Bright New Boise develops an authentic texture, separate from other pieces in its genre." - The Washington Post

A BRIGHT NEW BOISE opens October 20th and runs 5pm Saturdays, 7pm Sundays, and 8pm Mondays through December 9, 2012. ROGUE MACHINE is located at 5041 Pico Blvd., LA, CA 90019. Tickets are $30. Reservations: 855-585-5185 or at www.roguemachinetheatre.com
