“Salt Lake City. A son wrestles with his father in order to establish his identity in a country that was once promising, but which they both fear is now slipping through their fingers. The trace of glitter on the son’s face, a glimmer of light from inside a closet, these might might worry a father, but who’s to say that’s not where the hope is to be found?”

“Playwright-director Roger Benington has written a smart, rich script, with gripping characters and a fascinating use of fantasy elements…. A thoughtful piece of work, with lines that fly like poetry but stay beautifully grounded in the events of the play.” TIME OUT NEW YORK  Review of The Mormon Bird Play.
