In the bleak, 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, not only for employment, but also to rekindle a relationship with Alex, his brooding teenager, 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 souls of the Hobby Lobby confront an unyielding world through the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith. Samuel D. Hunter's “A Bright New Boise” is an earnest comedy about the meager profits of modern faith.
Auditioning actors need to be prepared with a one minute monologue that demonstrates their ability to convey comedy or drama in a effective manner. Actors will also be given sides from the script to read with other actors.
List of Characters:
WILL - Late thirties, male.
PAULINE - Late thirties to early forties, female.
ANNA - Late twenties to early thirties, female.
LEROY - Early to mid twenties, male.
