The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey
In this AWARD WINNING SOUTHEASTERN REGIONAL PREMIERE, tenacious 14 year-old Leonard Pelkey disappears.
A small town New Jersey detective slowly unravels the mystery, portraying over a dozen eccentric characters along the way. A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he is gone, the town’s citizens question how they live, who they love, and what they leave behind.
