Due Process: Hiram BeBee — Alias The Sundance Kid

Posted on Oct 17, 2018 in Plays, Women Playwrights

by Shirlee Hurst Shields Based on a True Story Who was the Sundance Kid? The play is about justice on three levels. One: the ‘told’ story of the townespeople who witnessed the murder of their Marshal and their resulting vigilante justice; Two: the ‘justice unto himself’ of Hiram Bebee (The Sundance Kid), a self-styled philosopher who interpreted the law his own way; Three: the story of the court appointed lawyer who must adjudicate between the two and serve justice according to the ethics of his profession. The origin of Bebee’s moniker, ‘The Sundance Kid’ is revealed along with his times with Butch Cassidy, the Wild Bunch and their South American Odyssey.

All The Scattered Leaves — a play

Posted on Jan 14, 2018 in Award Winners, Latest, New Releases, Plays, Women Playwrights

by Doreen Crookell   It is the Mid-Victorian era in England and the Mormon Church has made a name for itself throughout many parts of the land. Thousands of souls have been converted and have left for Salt Lake City, some never to be heard from again. The general feeling in many of the towns and villages is one of distrust and even fear of the “Mormons”. At the sight of the Missionaries, the women run inside and bolt the doors for fear of being abducted and imprisoned behind the walls of Salt Lake City. But the Mormon Elders continue to proselyte. Thus has the Maitland family’s life been disrupted and changed. Their eldest daughter, Rose, joined the Church the year previous and went to Zion. No word has yet been heard from her. As the play starts the...

Once I Lived In Cottonwood — A Musical

Posted on May 12, 2017 in Musicals, Women Playwrights

Book and Lyrics by John D. Rather and Susan Rather Music by Lynn G. Burton Available for Wards, and Stakes and Community Groups or Professionals Shortly after the first company of pioneers arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847, Brigham Young began calling the new arrivals to settle towns throughout the West. Given a choice, most of them would have stayed in the Salt Lake Valley. Harder yet, after having started a home in the valley, was being called to start over again away from Salt Lake. Perhaps the hardest of all was being called to Dixie in Southern Utah. Cottonwood is about one family’s feelings when being asked to leave their home in Cottonwood and go south to Washington County. In a more general sense it is a story about people who, because of their allegiance to...

Posted on Jul 23, 2013 in Latest, New Releases, Plays, Women Playwrights

by Agnes Stewart Broberg (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, LDS Church Groups) What happened before Joseph Smith’s First Vision?
