Borderlands — A Play

(For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups)

What’s it like to pretend to be perfect? What’s it like to be a Mormon but question your faith? What’s it like to be gay and LDS? What’s it like to live in the “Borderlands”? A powerful exploration of the difference between outward orthodoxy and true faith. This is not an easy play. It asks hard questions by presenting tough material in edgy situations. It deals with hypocrisy and self-righteousness but deftly avoids smugness or easy answers. Set in a used car lot in Provo, Utah this play is written with Latter-day Saint characters, but its philosophies and questions, its heart, are part of any Faith.
