With Love and a Major Organ

By Julia Lederer

December 5 - 22, 2018

    The story of a man with a paper heart, a mother who wanted to spare him the pain of a real one, and a woman on the subway with so much love to give. A modern-day fable about what it costs to give your heart away, and what happens when you discover you actually have one.

“A show that stands out above the others... just about perfect... rises to a rare level of universal truth, all while making us laugh. A lot.” —NewCity Stage (Chicago)

“Funny, insightful, and ends up saying much more about the heart and human interaction than simply being a quirky, poetically symbolic love story . . . What then could be more important than seeing a play like “With Love and a Major Organ,” with its insistence that one’s heart, in real time, is central to everything.” —The Daily Breeze (Los Angeles)

Lewiston

By Samuel D. Hunter

First of two plays performed in reperatory

February 6 - 9, 2019

February 20 - March 9, 2019

    Sam Hunter is coming home. These breathtakingly intimate plays by the Idaho native and MacArthur “Genius” Grant winner will be staged together for the first time in the two places dearest to Hunter’s heart, his longtime home of New York City, and his home state of Idaho. BCT is partnering with New York’s Rattlestick Playwrights Theater to stage both Lewiston & Clarkston as they were originally intended: companion pieces about modern day descendants of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark struggling to find a way forward in a world where there's nothing left to discover.

In Lewiston “Mr. Hunter manages to bring themes of isolation, loss and the burden of family legacy to a point of perfect dramatic equilibrium.” —New York Times

Lewiston and Clarkston “are haunted by the physical and psychological imprints of the American West and the 1804 Lewis and Clark expedition.“ —New York Times

In Clarkston “playwright Samuel D. Hunter has written dialogue so natural and believable that the audience can’t help getting emotionally sucked into the tale of two Costco workers struggling to keep their hopes alive and their humanity intact.” —The Dallas Morning News

Lewiston and Clarkston “are haunted by the physical and psychological imprints of the American West and the 1804 Lewis and Clark expedition.“ —New York Times

Rabbit/Moon

World Premiere

By Dwayne Blackaller and Matthew Cameron Clark

April 17 - May 4, 2019

    A love story set on the Moon, the most dangerous place anyone has ever been, challenging us to reconcile what we believe is real and what we believe to be impossible. More than 200,000 miles from home, NASA Commander Chandni Douglas has lost contact with earth just as one of her crew members, Will Lundon, has become stranded 45 miles from the spacecraft that was supposed to carry them all safely home. As the sun sets on their mission, and they are all plunged into the surreal lunar night, a paper forest rises from the dust and a trio of curious animals appears from the darkness to play out an ancient story, maybe the oldest story humans tell. A kind of fairytale that unfolds from the heart of a desolate, science fiction moonscape, Rabbit/Moon explores the liminal space between what we think and what we feel.
