Salt Lake City, UT – In a play by the poet and writer Carol Lynn Pearson - Alex and Ruth McCormick - devoted Mormons - stand in a cemetery after the funeral of their gay son who has committed suicide. They are trying to understand the life of their boy and their conflicting feelings of love for him and loyalty to their faith. "Facing East" is being performed by the Space Between Theatre Company in St. George, so we're rebroadcasting our conversation with Pearson. It's about the path she's cleared over time on the questions of homosexuality and religion.
The Space Between Theatre Company continues performances of "Facing East" through Monday, June 23 at the St. George Opera House. For tickets, call 435.216.5523 or click here
