A Bright New Boise

Where: Onstage Playhouse, 291 Third Avenue, Chula Vista

Cost: $22 - $25

Age limit: All ages

Ongoing: until Sunday, September 1, 2019

Set in the breakroom of a Hobby Lobby chain outlet in Boise, Idaho, A Bright New Boise begins with a job interview for a cashier’s position. Will is newly arrived in the big city from the obscurer northern regions of the state, and he is carefully grilled by store manager, Pauline, to confirm his antipathy to unions and his willingness to work 38 hours a week, just shy of full-time employment. For his part, Will projects a vibe of excessive compliance born of desperation. He quickly exposes his true motives, revealing to an adolescent employee Alex that he is in fact his biological father who put him up for adoption as an infant.
