“Before The Book of Mormon, there was a Mormon Boy!”
The international one-man sensation Confessions of a Mormon Boy is coming to Australia for the first time to perform as part of the 2019 Sydney Mardi Gras Festival.
The show will be at Giant Dwarf in Redfern between February 22 and March 9 and between March 6-8 at Chapel Off Chapel, Melbourne.
Confessions of a Mormon Boy is the inspiring true story about how one troubled young dad first learned to wake up and grow up—and kept learning. An emotional rollercoaster of extremes—from perfect Mormon boy in Utah to perfect rent boy in Manhattan—”OxyMormon” storyteller Steven Fales discovers an imperfect middle ground in this reclamation saga about what it means to finally come home. Told with humour, song, and The Book of Mormon, this life-affirming, transformational tale about how a sixth generation Latter Gay Saint attempts to reclaim his two kids and Donny Osmond smile.
Based on the original direction by legendary Tony Award-winner Jack Hofsiss (The Elephant Man), this critically acclaimed 90-minute solo play has educated and entertained audiences across the US and around the world.
