Event Overview

Enjoy the play The New York Times called “superlative!” The Trevor Project is offering a limited number of tickets to “The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey” at the Old Globe Theater in Balboa Park
on Friday, October 6.

Meet James Lecesne, the co-founder of The Trevor Project, and playwright and solo performer of the play. The ticket price includes admission to the play, a donation to The Trevor Project, and a post-show reception where you can meet Mr. Lecesne and enjoy refreshments.

About “The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey”:
Chuck DeSantis is a brash New Jersey detective eager for a case that gets him out from behind his desk. On one extraordinary day, he finds it: the disappearance of teenager Leonard Pelkey. Digging deeper and deeper into Leonard’s life, Chuck follows clues that lead him to unexpected places and show him how one boy’s bravery can light the way toward truth. James Lecesne delivers a solo tour de force, effortlessly bringing to life the inhabitants of a colorful seaside town as they awaken to the beauty of being different. The New York Times called Lecesne one of “the most talented solo performers of his (or any) generation” and said The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey “leaves you beaming with joy.”
