Moscow native Samuel Hunter has been incorporating intimate Idaho settings into his plays for nearly a decade. His work has been produced Off-Broadway and he's been the recipient of multiple theater awards and a MacArthur Genius Grant. His latest works are a pair of plays with intertwining plot lines that imagine the lives of the descendants of Lewis and Clark. The performances begin this week and are being produced by the Boise Contemporary Theater. Hunter joins Idaho Matterswith the company's founding artistic director, Matthew Cameron Clark.

Boise Contemporary Theater

A dead neighborhood dog, a man with a paper heart and stranded astronauts are just some of the fare on Boise Contemporary Theater's 2018/19 menu. Idaho Matters talks with BCT about some of the thought-provoking material on tap for this year, including a fish-out-of-water story about a New Yorker in Idaho.

Zoo Boise is undergoing many changes this past year; a new giraffe, the ground breaking of a new African exhibit and a new director.  Gene Peacock will assume his new role as Zoo Boise's director following the resignation of Steve Burns after a twenty-year tenure.  Peacock joins Idaho Matters to discuss the new exhibits and his vision for Zoo Boise.
