Playwright Matthew Greene's Good Standing is about a gay man facing a Mormon church disciplinary council for getting married. It’s a one-man show - one actor playing one man facing 15 others.

Here’s the set-up to Matthew Greene’s play now running at Plan-B Theatre Company in Salt Lake. Curtis is gay and Mormon. He’s just back from his honeymoon, and he’s received a letter from his stake president. He’s been summoned to a church disciplinary court for marrying man. He’s not sure he wants to show up, but he does. It’s a one-man show - one actor playing one man facing 15 others. Thursday, Greene join us, along with director Jerry Rapier and actor Austin Archer, to talk about it.

Plan-B Theatre Company's GOOD STANDING runs through this weekend, but is now sold out. There is a waiting list, and you can get details at planbtheatre.org
