Steven Fales was the model Mormon boy: an Eagle Scout, international missionary, BYU graduate, married in the Salt Lake Temple, and father of two children. But what happens when the model finds himself in â€œreparative therapyâ€ for "same-sex attraction"â€¦and fails?
CONFESSIONS OF A MORMON BOY is Falesâ€™ one man show chronicling his fall from favor with the Mormon Church and rise to grace as an out and proud gay man via the seedy underbelly of the New York City streets. â€œFalesâ€™ life is the stuff of great theatre,â€ said The Associated Press, and CONFESSIONS OF A MORMON BOY does not disappoint. This both tragic and comic autobiographical account weaves a twisted path through divorce, excommunication, drug abuse, and male prostitutionâ€” is this Mitt Romneyâ€™s Mormonism? Who can tell, yet Fales emerges to tell his triumphant story, right in the former-Governorâ€™s backyard. â€œWrenchingly honest, hilariously jubilant, and utterly clear-eyed,â€ Falesâ€™ amazing story of recovery and reclamation, is not to be missed (LA Times).
