Listen for the Light
by Kara Lee Corthron
TRUE FAITH ALWAYS COMES WITH A COST
From playwright Kara Lee Corthron (winner of the Princess Grace award and multiple NEA grants) comes a blazingly theatrical look at God, faith and redemption.
It's 1844 and the word of God has been revealed to Joseph Smith, making him a prophet to some and a lightning rod to others. He must fight his inner and outer demons as a free black man with a tragic past questions his faith, and a precocious young woman locked in a room reluctantly awaits word from God.
God is watching and the holiest of holy revelations can happen at any time. So can its opposite.
