Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

October 14th, at Theater Lab Houston, Steven Fales will be entering the black box arena to perform the second part of his one man act trilogy, Confessions of a Mormon BoyMissionary Position (part II) is a fantastical memoir based on journals and notebooks Fales kept while completing his two-year mission in Portugal. In 90 minutes of what some have regarded as a cathartic confessional, Fales lets the public into the secrets of your household Mormon missionary. It may not be the overly righteous, conservative endeavor us lesser heathens thought it to be. In fact, the act begins with a startling self realization.While undergoing musical theater training at a Boston conservatory, Fales confronts the truth of his sexuality- he’s gay.

Reacting to the homoerotic discovery of his bed sheet desires, Fales takes off to Portugal. It doesn’t quite seem to cure him of his queerness, however; Missionary Position features three separate comedic accounts of Fales’ sexual conquest. The theatrical rendition of this holy expedition isn’t all foolery. Anyone raised in or around the sanctity of religious regimen knows the dangers of coming out of the closet. Fales, like millions of others, risked rejection of his family, friends, and church. Portugal is a wrestling match to figure out what he should do about his undeniable selfs. Steven Fales brings that inner collision to the stage in Missionary Position.

Theater Lab Houston has only two more productions left, including Missionary Position, before closing the doors at their 1706 Alamo Street location on December 2nd. This Mormon epic will take place in one week, October 14th-21st. Weekday tickets are $25 while weekend tickets are $30.
