The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey of the Outer Critics Circle & Off Broadway Alliance Awards for Outstanding Solo Performance
Written and Performed by James Lecesne
(Creator of the The Trevor Project and Academy Award winning short lm, Trevor)
Directed by Tony Speciale
Original Music by Duncan Sheik
When 14-year-old Leonard Pelkey mysteriously disappears from a small, New Jersey shore town, the secrets of the townspeople are brought to light, and everyone is forced to examine the effect of one boy’s life on a fractured community. Adapted from Lecesne's novel of the same name, this 70 minute solo show begins with the discovery of Leonard’s disappearance and follows the criminal investigation to its startling conclusion. A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he’s gone, Leonard Pelkey becomes the unexpected inspiration for a town as they question how we live, who we love and what we leave behind.
