MARCH 29 – APRIL 27, 2019

THE ABSOLUTE BRIGHTNESS OF LEONARD PELKEY

CHICAGO PREMIERE

Written by: James Lecesne
Directed by: Kurt Johns

Ensemble member Joe Foust portrays every character in a small Jersey Shore town as he unravels the story of Leonard Pelkey, a tenanciously optimistic and flamboyant fourteen-year-old boy who goes missing.  A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he is gone, Leonard becomes an unexpected inspiration as the town’s citizens question how they live, who they love, and what they leave behind. L.A. Times says it “shines with humanity”. To learn more, read our Artistic Director’s note (coming soon) and Backstage Guide (coming soon).
