Samuel D. Hunter is the recipient of a 2014 MacArthur "Genius Grant" Fellowship, and the 2012 recipient of the Whiting Award for Drama. Bard Theatre is proud to have been one of the first companies in the country to produce his "A Bright New Boise" (seen here in 2012).

Siblings Bo and Ally are back in thier childhood home in Idaho for the funeral of their father. Their mother Carol has painted the whole house white and is suspected to have been drinking since their father's death. What Ally and Bo come to find out is that their mother has a method to her madness as she pulls out some home videos of their father just before he died. Called a fusion between realism and the absurd, A Permanent Image is a tense exploration of the distance families put between themselves, and what it takes to bring them back together.

"...a thought-provoking, raw examination of human nature that will leave you pondering it for days." Boise Weekly

"A Permanent Image IS great theatre!"

"...Hunter uses a wacky, bizarre circumstance to tickle your theatrical muscle, and then good old-fashioned empathy to make you think about how you would react in the same circumstance. Truly, the appeal of this play is all in that tension." - Chicago Tribune
