Will Bonfiglio, recently onstage in Stray Dog’s acclaimed one-man show, BUYER AND CELLAR, will be employing his additional talents as he joins the cast of The Midnight Company’s LITTLE THING, BIG THING, providing live musical accompaniment to the production.. The play, by Donal O’Kelly, will be performed January 27-February 11, 2017, Thursdays-Saturdays 8pm, at Avatar Studios, 2675 Scott Ave., 63103 in Downtown St. Louis. Tickets are $15, available through BrownPaperTickets.Com.
LITTLE THING, BIG THING tells the story of a nun, Sr. Martha, and an ex-con, Larry O’Donnell, who are thrown together in a desperate quest to safeguard film exposing deadly misdeeds of a powerful oil company. Chased by hired killers and corrupt cops, they risk their lives and head to Dublin to do the right thing, and deliver the film to the right hands.
Critics from Edinburgh to New York to Adelaide have responded with superlatives:
“A rollicking adventure…” “A powerful story…” “An unmissable thriller…” “Riveting…” “Adrenaline-packed…” “A pertinent comment on corporate power and corruption.”

Jason Scroggins and Will Bonfiglio will provide the live music soundtrack.
