The Brothers • A Play

The Brothers • A Play

by Christie Lund Coles

(For production by  College/University Groups, Community Groups, LDS Church Groups)

Hunted and persecuted, Hyrum Smith and his brother, Joseph hide, wait and watch. Mobs of unruly men are searching for them thinking of nothing but death. But the Lord watches over his chosen; they have safety, and a time to reflect. “When will it end? Where did it all start? Why? Where will it lead?” A deeply moving play about “The Brothers”.
