ABOUT LETTERS TO ZOEY

In the middle of the night, Weldon Keyes jumps on a coal train and leaps into his rite of passage. Wandering through the country, he composes letters and songs to his friend Zoey. Through his travels, he realizes what he felt was lacking in his life and what he desperately seeks to find, is what he left behind.

ABOUT BE HAPPY BE MORMON

“Be Happy Be Mormon” is a voyeuristic look into the childhood of a Bambi-loving vegetarian, ballet slipper wearing, Diet Coke drinking gay Mormon Boy Scout. Born into a large conservative Idaho family he doesn’t relate to, Kimball Allen chronicles his upbringing as a fabulous black sheep through colorful narration, private home movies, songs, dance and the occasional acrobatics in this hysterically tragic performance.

Allen’s latest play will premiere at the highly acclaimed Theatre Row in the heart of the New York City theatre district as part of “The Official Selection of 2014 United Solo Theatre Festival.

Playwright/Performer: Kimball Allen.
Director: Emma Hassett
