1857 Utah: 127 West-bound pioneers die in the Mountain Meadows Massacre. The mass murder haunts Mormon daughters Lavinia and Hettie as they grow from friends, to mothers, to sister-wives. Tethered to their polygamous doctrine and to the men who killed in its name, can the women reconcile their faith with the truth?
GAN-e-meed Theatre Project presents Julie Jensen’s Two-Headed, an intimate exploration of the friendship of two women on the frontier of Mormonism. They struggle to define themselves within the oppressive patriarchy and complex entanglements of plural marriage which define their culture. Becky Webber (Horatio in 2011’s Hamlet) directs Executive Artistic Director SerahRose Roth and Kara Manson in this gripping historical drama.
