Though Boise is known as the City of Trees because of its abundant arboreal life, it could also be called the City of Eccentricities for its eclectic citizens. Wednesday, Sept. 14, through Saturday, Sept. 17, at Visual Arts Collective, Alley Underground will perform Voices from the Boise Hole, a monologue play inspired by and dedicated to the people of Boise.
A continuation of Alley Repertory's SPARK series, the play focuses on the subtle dynamics of human interaction. Written by Jason Haskins and Evan Sesek and directed by Liberty Leeds Klautsch, Voices from the Boise Hole showcases the talents of four actors: Aaron Kiefer, Dakotah Brown, Sarah Gardner and Luke Massengill. These actors will play a total of 16 characters, including an ex-Bronco football player who wishes his days as a star jock never ended, a kid who is elated to have made his first black friend, and an affable security guard at the Boise Public Library. Boise dwellers are sure to connect with the exploits of these characters and perhaps see a little bit of themselves in their portrayals.
Each night will also feature live music by Atomic Mama and other local bands. Bring your ID: VAC is a 21-and-older venue so you can imbibe while you're entertained.
