"Worthy of Imitation": Contemporary Mormon Drama on the Latter Day Stage
Tufts University, 2009 - 317 ページ
This dissertation titled "Worthy of Imitation": Contemporary Mormon Drama on the Latter Day Stage examines contemporary dramatic works written by current and former members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (hereafter LDS Church or Mormon Church). During the past four decades, Mormon theatre has evolved in response to both the changing cultural attitudes within the Church and the changing cultural response from "secular" America toward Mormonism. In my examination of this evolution, I focus on six plays that are representative of a variety of thematic and artistic trends and consider the extent to which these dramatic works reveal a particularly Mormon aesthetic, one infused with theological, cultural, and geographical identifications.
