1/8/09: The Yellow Leaf

Salt Lake City, UT – Charles Morey is Artistic Director of Pioneer Theatre Company. He's also a playwright and his newest work is called The Yellow Leaf. It's set in 1816 when Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley and others went to Switzerland to escape scandal. Morey says their story reads like a soap opera, but his play is more than that. It's a window into the sexual mores, the politics and religious thought of the time. The Yellow Leaf premieres this weekend, and Thursday, Doug talks to Charles Morey and others about the play.

Charles Morey's The Yellow Leaf runs January 9 - 24 at the Pioneer Theatre Company. For tickets and information, call 801-581-6961 or visit www.pioneertheatre.org
