An uncommonly powerful, gripping, and very moving piece of theatre. Staying away would be a mistake.  – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

Told with humour, song and unflinching honesty, Confessions of a Mormon Boy is the inspiring true story of storyteller Steven Fales’ journey from being a devoted, sixth-generation Mormon and father of two to coming out as gay and being excommunicated from his church. Riding an emotional roller coaster of extremes – from perfect Mormon boy in Utah to perfect rent boy in Manhattan – Fales discovers what it means to finally come home, if only in your heart.

Based on original Off-Broadway direction by Tony Award-winner Jack Hofsiss, this soulful solo play is performed with “an astonishing generosity of spirit, fierce comedy, and sharp intelligence” (Boston Globe). The climax has a simple, self-revelatory coup-de-theatre that “hits us between the eyes like a shot with a two-by-four” (Chicago Sun-Times).

American actor and playwright Steven Fales has been performing ‘Confessions’ for over a decade across the US and around the world. He was nominated the Overall Excellence Award for Solo Show at the New York International Fringe Festival and the Oscar Wilde Award for Outstanding New Writing for the Theatre at the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival.

    The show was a bit long.
    This is proof that everybody has a story and this story told by the artist himself was beautiful and touching. Well done
