It was a late-night, philosophical conversation that got playwright Melissa Leilani Larson thinking about polygamy. Larson is a member of the LDS Church, where polygamy is an awkward, historic fact. And Larson is single, so it comes up sometimes when people suggest she could marry in the hereafter. Larson’s not interested, but she says “no” doesn’t make good drama. So what if polygamy were restored in Mormonism? Tuesday, Larson and others join Doug to talk about her new play Pilot Program.
Plan-B Theatre Company premiered Pilot Program last week, and it runs through April 19th at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. For tickets and more information, call 801-355-ARTS (3787) or click here.
Guests: Playwright Melissa Leilani Larson, director Jerry Rapier, actors Mark Fossen, April Fossen, Susanna Florence Risser
