Big Idea Theatre continues its hit 2013 season on Friday, Sept. 27, with the opening of Lee Blessing’s prescient and provocative “Lonesome Hollow.”

In the not too distant future, a photographer of artistic nudes is sentenced to an open-ended imprisonment in a state run “penal village” for sexual offenders. Seeking to find peace among a community of rapists and child molesters, he builds a Zen labyrinth under the watchful eye of a sympathetic guard. With shades of Hawthorne, Guantanamo Bay and “A Clockwork Orange,” this darkly thoughtful play explores the dangers of society’s desperate quest for a sense of security.

This one act show is directed by Gina Williams and features a small ensemble cast that includes the local talents of Eason Donner, Devon Roe, Jamie Kale, and Big Idea Company members Justin Munoz and Jouni Kirjola.

“Lonesome Hollow” is playing at Big Idea Theatre, 1616 Del Paso Blvd. in Sacramento, Sept. 27 through Oct. 26. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Tickests are $16 (online)/$20 (at the door) general admission, $14 (online)/$18 (door) for students/seniors/SARTA and $10 on Thrifty Thursdays. Groups (10 or more) pay $10 per ticket and reservations are encouraged.
