If you happened to catch Craig Wright’s The Pavilion at Boise Contemporary Theater last fall—a tearful tale of reunited high school sweethearts played by Hollis Welsh and Dywane Blackaller—you’ll be excited to hear that BCT is tackling Wright once again.
As a part of their 5X5 Reading Series, BCT has invited director Evan Sesek to bring to life Lady, the story of three childhood pals who embark on an annual hunting trip in the woods of Illinois. Armed with guns and 30-odd-years of emotional baggage, the three middle-aged friends soon realize that they are about as opposite as can be. Though the BCT performance won’t feature any sets or costuming, audiences are invited to watch the trio dissect their opinions on the Iraq war and strive to find common ground in this paired down, intimate production.
Catch the performance at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 22. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students or those under 25.
