Bright Ideas follows Joshua and Genevra, who will do anything to get their son Mac into Bright Ideas Early Childhood Development Academy. When the opportunity arises, they find themselves one fatal dinner party away from the ultimate success as parents: The Right Preschool.

Performed by 16 Beck Center students ages 13-19, Bright Ideas mirrors Macbeth as Josh and Gen follow a path toward destruction in pursuit of their somewhat irrational desires, or at least irrational expectations.You may never look at preschool - or pesto - the same way again...
