Kip Fagan directs the play that began previews May 21 and will run through June 13 at 59E59 Theaters. Page 73 presents the production. Featured in the cast are Tom Bloom (Cyrano de Bergerac), Lucas Papaelias (Cyrano de Bergerac), Eddie Kaye Thomas (Dog Sees God , "American Pie") and Karen Walsh (Pygmalion, Accent on Youth).

Here's how Page 73 bills the work: "A video of insurgents beheading Jack Lewis is released over the Internet. Back home in Idaho, Jack's twin, father and widow are left to pick up the pieces — so to speak. The only solution to this Christian family's grief and mounting spiritual crisis: The Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, MO."

Designing Jack's Precious Moment are Lee Savage (scenic design), Matt Frey (lighting design), Jessica Ford (costume design) and Bart Fasbender (sound design).

Hunter has authored the plays I Am Montana, Five Genocides, Atlasing Sodom, Idaho/Dead Idaho, Norman Rockwell Killed My Father, Abraham (A Shot in the Head), Hells Canyon and The Whale.
