Prayers from Winter Quarters • A Short Play

Prayers from Winter Quarters • A Short Play

by Eric Samuelsen

(For production by LDS Wards, Stakes and Community Groups. Colleges and Universities may also find it interesting.)

While perfect for use by, say, a Relief Society for their monthly meeting, it can also be theatrically produced by a Ward, Stake or Community Theatre.  The topics associated with the play are: Prayer, Faith, Pioneers, Trials, Enduring, Being Thankful. It can be produced as a Reader’s Theatre or it can be memorized. It is very simple. No setting. No props. Costumes could be worn, or the characters could stay in modern dress. That might tie-in more closely the prayers from Winter Quarters with women of the modern day. For a Relief Society presentation, each prayer could be separately cast to involve more women.
