The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey

Friday, Mar. 22nd - Saturday, Mar. 30th

Fourteen-year-old Leonard Pelkey has disappeared. A misfit child of amazing heart and light who altered every person he touched, is missing. His homemade rainbow Converse sneakers are found deep in the rural lake, people are whispering a lot of things and one of them is… hate crime. Actor Jimmy Janowski gives a transcendent performance through a tale of tears, laughs, spiritual light to absolute authenticity. In superb solo performance, he transforms from a hardboiled Jersey detective into nine witnesses who knew the boy. We meet everyone but Leonard, yet his light is profound, leaving audiences thinking about him for days to come.
