‘A Permanent Image’

“A Permanent Image” is the latest play from award-winning writer Samuel D. Hunter. Focusing on siblings Bo and Alley, who have come home for their father’s funeral only to find their mother in the throes of irreconcilable grief. She’s on an alcohol-fueled bender and watching old home videos of their late father. They soon realize it’s going to take all they have to pull the family through this loss. “A Permanent Image” is simultaneously both funny and heartbreaking — with just an air of nostalgia thrown in for good measure. Playwright Hunter has won the Macarthur Genius Grant Fellowship and the Whiting Award for Drama. In 2012, Louisville’s own The Bard’s Town Theatre was one of the first companies in the country to produce his show “A Bright New Boise.”
