Silver Summit Theatre Company announces open auditions for Leaving Eden: Latter-day Stories, which will make it's WORLD PREMIERE at the first annual GREATER SALT LAKE FRINGE FESTIVAL, August -9, 2015. Directed by Michele Rideout.
Leaving Eden: Latter-day Stories is a project that seeks to explore and examine the LDS faith crisis, transition, and inevitable spiritual journies members experience when faced with historicity and doctrinal issues they find disturbing. Cognitive dissonance, why people leave, and also why people stay even after learning new information that leads others out of the LDS Church, will be looked at. Latter-day Saints who experience such a crisis often refer to what is known by those who become disaffected as a "shelf" upon which these doctrinal and historical questions and doubts are placed. What happens when there is too much on the shelf and it collapses? What happens to families when one of it's members goes through a faith crisis and/or ultimately leaves the faith of the family?
