The Mormon Bird Play
THE ENSEMBLE PRESENTS A WORLD PREMIERE
Written and Directed by Roger Benington
Six male actors play little girls, who become birds, who manifest themselves as Mormon temple workers and Mormon pioneer women. This is the allegoric dream-world of The Mormon Bird Play, a darkly-twisted new comedy in which ten year-old Ivona, ugly, gawky, and mute, comes to live with her Mormon cousins in Salt Lake City. When she finds an injured bird on the grounds of the LDS Temple, Ivona immediately becomes an object of suspicion, dangerously reflecting the ills of the culture that surrounds her. Can that society suffer a mirror of its own imperfection, or must that mirror be shattered?
