  • Part 2 - MISSIONARY POSITION: A Coming-of-Age Tale

    This raucous, poignant prequel to CONFESSIONS OF A MORMON BOY—based on Steven Fales’s journals from his LDS mission to Portugal—takes audiences on an exuberant solo journey behind the Mormon Machine’s global religious colonization, including the secret cult rites of the temple ceremony never before seen onstage. This “mission statement” tenderly sets the stage for Fales’ upcoming fall from grace in CONFESSIONS while verging on high camp with outrageous fantasy sequences as Elder Fales wrangles with Portuguese Conquistadors, Porn Czars, Mormon Oompa-Loompas, and finally his perky, pious nineteen-year-old self out to re-convert him. Mission impossible? Come get converted yourself by assuming the position. What happens in a mission, stays in a mission—until now. Like CONFESSIONS, MISSIONARY POSITION has enjoyed successful engagements all across the United States.

    Part 3 - PRODIGAL DAD: A Manic Memoir-Meditation

    In this sequel to CONFESSIONS, a penniless non-custodial dad returns home to Utah at the height of the Great Recession only to find himself fighting for his life and rights as a father in this compelling family courtroom drama. As he looks to answers from his lost Greco-Mormon heritage, he comes face to face with his own demons and conjures his greatest nemesis, shattering myths and family secrets in an underworld where bipolar ghosts and mortals collide. Will this prodigal ever receive the father’s blessing he craves and that his own bishop father can’t seem to bestow? Greek and biblical in its themes, all is redeemed and the “sins of the fathers” forgiven by the end of this often dark, powerful, but surprisingly funny solo dramedy.
