Playwright Kimball B. Allen to Speak at Sunstone Symposium, 8/2

Seattle based Playwright/Performer, KIMBALL B. ALLEN, will discuss and read excerpts of his latest bestselling Off-Broadway show "Be Happy Be Mormon" at the Sunstone Symposium on August 2nd at 2:00 PM in Salt Lake City, UT. "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 60 minute performance. "Be Happy Be Mormon" is recommended for adults, theatre and LGBTQA community.

The Salt Lake Sunstone Symposium is an annual gathering of Latter Day Saints, Scholars and others interested in the diversity and richness of Mormon thought and experience and to enjoy pondering the past, present, and future of the unfolding Restoration. The Symposium is a public conference based on the principles of "open forum," meaning that we invite rigorous enquiry and thought, respectful participation, trusting that the cause of truth and the society of the Saints are best served by free and open exploration.

Admission to all Sunstone Symposium sessions (July 30-Aug 2) can be purchased onsite at the Olpin Student Union, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT. Visit Sunstone.org for more details or call (801) 355-5926.
