White Mountain • A Play About Inner Vision

by Mahonri Stewart

On the 19th century Missouri frontier, Ruth is abandoned by her impulsive, dreamer husband.

REVIEWS

“The dialogue seemed natural and easy . . . I loved the way dreams played a role in both the theme and the dramatic structure of the play. The verbal retelling of dreams was lovely, but best of all were the staged dreams. They are nicely written and beautifully and poignantly staged by director Brian Randall. I was invested in the characters enough that I would have liked to have seen more of their story, but this short play was self-contained enough to be satisfying on its own.” —Bianca Morrison Dillard, Utah Theatre Bloggers Association
