Event Details

Running Time 2 hours
Venue Stoner Theater
Intermission: 15 minutes
Official Website: www.iowastage.org

Will moves from his rural Idaho hometown and gets a job at the Boise Hobby Lobby looking for a fresh start – and a chance to meet Alex, the brooding teenager he gave up for adoption. However, Will’s secrets follow him, and soon everyone, from foul-mouthed manager Pauline to shy dreamer Anna and especially Alex’s adopted brother Leroy, is pulled into them. This moving yet funny play was a breakthrough for playwright Samuel Hunter, a graduate of University of Iowa, and won the Obie for best play. Another of Hunter’s plays, The Whale, is being released as a film starring Brendan Fraser.

"The dollar ticket price [for the Applause Series shows] is unbelievable. Without it, we would't be able to come. The people who support this program need to be applauded because it gives kids great opportunities."
