Performances begin July 17 at Bay Street Theater for Steven Fales' Confessions of a Mormon Boy, the first of his Mormon Boy Trilogy, three solo plays written and performed by the actor and writer. Bay Street Artistic Director Scott Schwartz directs the special engagement, which runs on the mainstage through July 22.
Readings of the two other plays in the trilogy, Mission Statement and Prodigal Dad, will take place July 22 and July 23 at the Sag Harbor theatre, to be followed by an Off-Broadway run of all three plays in early 2019.
An Off-Broadway theatre will be announced at a later date. N2 Productions is attached, with executive producers Joe Watson and Richard Frankel.
Mormon Boy Trilogy consists of three solo plays written and performed by Outer Critics Circle nominee Fales. The trilogy is billed as a modern western odyssey of "a gay Everyman" determined to find his way back home.
While the plays have been previously staged, this new production marks a revised version as a result of a collaboration between Schwartz and Fales.
Actor, playwright, and producer Fales is a sixth-generation Mormon formally excommunicated from the LDS Church for “the practice of homosexuality.” Before specializing in solo performance, he worked extensively as an actor in classic plays and musicals in regional theatres including the Utah Shakespeare Festival, Pioneer Theatre Co., Stages St. Louis, Sundance Summer Theatre, and Connecticut Repertory Theatre, among others.
