Friends of God • A Play

by Mahonri Stewart

(Under license from Prospero Arts and Media)

Joseph Smith, the founder and prophet of Mormonism, is in his last days. As rumors of Joseph’s involvement in polygamy and other controversies rocks the faith of even some of the most stalwart of his followers, his enemies plot his death. Yet, even in these dark, tumultuous days in 19th century Nauvoo, Illinois, the controversial Mormon leader steps forward into the conflict with his sense of mission undeterred. Who will stand loyal to him as he strives to stand loyal to his principles and his God, and who will take part in offering him up as a sacrifice to appease the fury building up against his controversial and shocking actions?
