Saints on Stage: An Anthology of Mormon Drama is now available at Zarahemla Books’ website, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.
After a half decade of delays, obstacles, research, and revising, I am so pleased that this behemoth is now ready to release onto an unsuspecting world! The plays it includes (from such Mormon Letters luminaries as Eric Samuelsen, Margaret Blair Young, Melissa Leilani Larson, Thomas F. Rogers, Susan E. Howe, James Arrington, Scott Bronson, Tim Slover, Robert Elliott, and Thom Duncan) have effected my life in profound ways and I hope other people will feel the same. They make up some of the finest accomplishments in the history of Mormon Drama. The volume is huge… nearly 700 pages. It has 11 plays, playwright biographies, and a 30+ page introduction on the history of Mormon drama. We’ve tried to be thorough, we’ve tried to give you something meaningful. I hope you’ll see why this is a project I thought was worth working and waiting for.

Congrats! Amazon says its shipping weight is 2 pounds. That’s one hefty piece of Mormon lit.
Yeah, its a BIG book. Literally.
And when I originally pitched the book, I was going to have ANOTHER volume later to make room for the plays I loved which didn’t make the cut. Considering that this one took a half decade to put together, not sure whether that would happen now or not. My wife may kill me if I attempted that.
With this, Dispensation, Fire in the Pasture, and M&M all we need now is a new anthology of Mormon literary criticism…
Scott, sounds like you’re up to bat! 🙂
I just got a copy of Tending the Garden. Not that that helps at all.
I’ve got my copy! Now I just need to find a quiet corner… which is tough to do in this house…
Yeah, in your house it is, Mark. But at least it’s full of such joyful souls! Make sure to tell me what you think…
Someday I’d like to get a copy of that…
You’ll be getting a free one when I’m in Utah this month, Scott! 🙂
