Confessions Of A Mormon Boy
Written and Performed by Stephen Fales
"Before The Book of Mormon there was a Mormon Boy!"
The international one-man sensation Confessions of a Mormon Boy comes to Australia!
This transformational true story of extremes–from perfect Mormon Boy in Utah to perfect Rent Boy in Manhattan–is told with humor, song, and unflinching honesty as outcast Oxy-Mormon and Outer Critics Circle Award Nominee, Steven Fales, ultimately finds a middle ground and learns what it means to finally come home. Based on original off-Broadway direction by Tony Award-winner Jack Hofsiss (The Elephant Man), this critically acclaimed 90-minute solo play has educated and entertained audiences across the US and around the world.
After conversion therapy, excommunication, divorce, prostitution and drugs, an exiled sixth-generation Latter Gay Saint reclaims his kids and Donny Osmond smile. This extraordinary, life-affirming journey to hell and back is now Part One in Mormon Boy Trilogy.

"Confessions of a Mormon Boy is a well told 90-minute experience of a life that needs to be seen and heard." - Lilthia Reviews
"In an intimate stage setting, equipped with some eye-catching costume changes to boot, Fales' charisma, commanding stage presence and excellent storytelling carries the show and elevates it, uncovering the solid truth about his life and delivering an outstanding addition to this year's Midsumma Festival." - Lilthia Reviews
"epic roller coaster of emotional discovery." - Victoria Discovers
"Fales is a showman who can spin a yarn ... and what more familiar yarn is there than one's life story that keeps on giving" - The Blurb
"Fales is effusive – joyous and funny, intense and dramatic." - The Blurb
"an incredible exploration of our condition and the constant tussle we face in wanting to, being able to and allowed to identify and live as our authentic selves....I don't believe that seeing this show should be encouraged, I think it should be compulsory." - Australian Stage
"Fales' story is a compelling, exciting and even arousing tale of personal triumph, introspection and forgiveness..." - Australian Stage
"Blessed with matinee idol looks and the physical appeal to match, he is an expert story-teller. Meaning, Fales has that performer's ability to be confident one minute, self-deprecating the next." - Theatre People
"a gripping piece of solo theatre." - Stage Whispers
"Fales is an exceptional talent who delivers an honest, vivid and animated performance." - Stage Whispers
