Papa Married A Mormon — The Play

papaMarriedAMormonARTby John D. Fitzgerald. Adapted for the stage by Rodger D. Sorensen.

(For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, LDS & Other Church Groups)

Papa Married a Mormon is like a family patchwork quilt worn threadbare from use. It becomes more familiar and warm each time you pick it up and wrap yourself in it. Like a quilt, Sorensen’s theatrical adaptation brings us close to these characters — who are not threadbare at all — and wraps us in the kindness of their charitable lives. It asks questions about tolerance and brotherly love. The story is told from the viewpoint of JD Fitzgerald, who grew up in Price, Utah in a family with a Catholic papa and a Scandinavian Mormon mama. Can this house, often divided against itself, stand? Definitely! With Papa and Mama at the helm, even with their different religions, they successfully raise a wonderful family.
