Brothers • A Play

Posted on Jul 17, 2019 in ZT New Test, ZT Old Test, ZT Plays

by J. Scott Bronson (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, LDS Church Groups, Youth Theatres) Brothers is a retelling of the story of two of the foremost personalities in the heavenly realms — Jehovah and Lucifer. What if — as well as a description of birth order and an indicator of hierarchy — the appellation “firstborn” was also a title?  Could the Heavenly Father assign this role to any of his children? This is one of the questions confronted by Brothers. From the pre-mortal world through a Wilderness, a Garden, and to the Abyss, Brothers will subtly explore the relationship between this most supreme pair of brothers. PLAY DETAILS 2M About 90 minutes Simple settings and costumes ORDER #2019 Available for ALL producing groups. REVIEW “… an engrossing treatment of a uniquely Mormon theology… I applaud...

Stones • A Play

Posted on Jul 17, 2019 in Award Winners, Plays, Religious Titles, ZT New Test, ZT Old Test, ZT Plays, ZT Short Plays

by J. Scott Bronson ALTARS — 2M1W. Open Setting TOMBS — 2M 1W. Open Setting. Time for each: Just under an hour. (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, LDS Church Groups, Youth Theatres) STONES is the recipient of the 2001 Award for Drama from the Association for Mormon Letters. “STONES is a perfect example of the three keys to playwrighting: Story, Character, Dialogue. Both acts thousands of years apart in real time, appear outwardly to tell two different stories. But the similarities in the themes of faith and family reach across the years to bind the play into one coherent story that is relevant today and will always be as long as humans walk the Earth.” ALTARS is the story of Abraham, Isaac and Sarai. TOMBS is the story of Mary, Jesus and Joseph....

Charlie’s Monument • The Musical

Posted on Jul 13, 2013 in Musicals, Religious Titles, Women Playwrights and Composers, ZT New Test, ZT Women Authors

Book by Susan McCloud and Marvin Payne Lyrics by Marvin Payne Music by Newell Dayley based on the popular, best-selling novel by Blaine M. Yorgason (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, Church Groups, Youth Theatres) It is the frontier! It is 1890. He has only one arm and a twisted foot. He stands on the mountain bravely watching over the town that cast him out — piling stones in some frail hope that he’ll be remembered. Then he is loved by one who sees and mirrors the bright spirit inside him. He is fulfilled, awakened, renewed. But then he is wounded, called to be tried and when all but love is stripped away, he is triumphant. Charlie is the tender, crippled man ostracized by his fellow citizens and it is Nellie’s love and faith...
