Listen for the Light


A former slave with a tragic past questions his faith, a powerful man fights his inner and outer demons, and a precocious young woman locked in a room reluctantly awaits word from God. It’s 1844 and in the small town of Nauvoo, Illinois, Joseph Smith—Mormon prophet—rules all. Or so he believes. Know Theatre is thrilled to produce the World Premiere of this play by award-winning playwright Kara Lee Corthron, originally commissioned by South Coast Rep.

10 words or less: Faith and freedom collide in this historical drama.
Rated: PG-13.
