An absolute hit in cities across the US as well as London’s West End and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The play has toured extensively all over the country and internationally. Steven Fales finally finds his way to Denver to perform his controversial, critically acclaimed, award-winning off-Broadway hit, CONFESSIONS OF A MORMON BOY. What better venue than atDenver’s Dangerous theatre?
This 90-minute solo play recounts how Steven went from being the perfect Mormon boy inUtahto a high-priced call boy inNew York Cityand how he found a middle ground. This provocative and inspiring true story takes the audience from his Mormon mission to Portugal and temple marriage, through reparative therapy, excommunication, divorce, prostitution and crystal meth addiction as he struggles to reclaim his self, his two children and his ‘Donny Osmond smile.’ Says Fales, “This is his contribution to help end spiritual abuse and religious violence in churches, mosques, and synagogues.”
Steven Fales is former son-in-law of celebrated Mormon poet Carol Lynn Pearson.
