Dream Builder, The

Synopsis:
In an eclectic mix of the ancient and the contemporary, Dream Builder retells the story of Noah and the ark. For 600 years, opposed by an unfriendly district council, the decidedly unhandy Noah has tried and failed to make his building projects match his dreams. But God's call changes everything

God's Fisherman

Synopsis:
The story of Wilford Woodruff, a great missionary for the Lord Jesus Christ. Wilford Woodruff was a man who coupled his commitment with high spirits, boundless enthusiasm, and seemingly endless energy. This one man play tells the story of young Wilford on his various missions. How did he do it? There are glimpses in this one-man play: the unshakable commitment to the gospel and its appointed leaders, especially Joseph Smith, was a hallmark of his entire life. There were also his guilelessness and his humility, his ability to endure hardship, his dry sense of humor.

Hancock County

Synopsis:
In 1844 the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were killed by a mob. The next year their accused assassins came to trial. Hancock County dramatizes that trial and the tensions between the Mormons, led by Brigham Young, and their enemies, who were trying to drive them from the state of Illinois. "Hancock County" is a very fine play; an intelligent, thrilling, tightly-drawn courtroom drama/tragedy that unfolds into a meditation on America, violence, and forgiveness. It bears comparison to Robert Bolt's "A Man For AllSeasons." -- R. W. Rasband of Association for Mormon Letters "Hancock County" moves swiftly from one scene to another, using and re-using minimal set pieces and props. It also employs the occasional dose of dry humor&" -- Eric Snider, Provo Daily Herald
