Overview

LITTLE BLACK BOXES is a magical, romantic fantasy. It takes place circa 1920. A small town is turned upside down when a stranger, wearing a bowler and mustache, rides into town on his bike and selectively hands out a dozen little, black boxes. He instructs the new owners not to open his or her boxes, for if they do the boxes will be empty. However, he says that their patience will bring them (or someone they know) a treasure. Along the way, lost loves are found, mysteries uncovered, murderers and crooks are routed out, and there is, perhaps, a miracle or two. Anyway—everyone will get exactly what they deserve! Learn how lives are changed for the better or worse as this unusual situation is dealt with.

Little Black Boxes is an ideal ensemble piece! Several simultaneous stories are being told, ensuring that no two characters dominate the performance.

"Little Black Boxes is a magical and charming show. Mr. Breitenbach creates credible characters that we really care about. I was left with a very good feeling."

Meet the Author

T. E. Breitenbach is best known for his painting Proverbidioms, a raucous and comical depiction of over 300 common proverbs and clichés. He also collaborated with Jim Morrison of The Doors, before Morrison's death, on a painting intended for use on his An American Prayer album. Breitenbach studied architecture and fine arts (in an independent study program) at the University of Notre Dame and was the youngest person to receive the Rome Prize Fellowship in visual arts. Inspired by the castles of Europe, he returned home and began to build a studio/castle to house his art and eventually become a museum. Breitenbach went on to work in many other media too. Besides his illustrated fantasy novel, Grumparar's the New Creatures, he has written a book of painting secrets and two musicals (music and all), including Hieronymus a partly autobiographical story about medieval fantasy artist Hieronymus Bosch and his over-active imagination.
