About

Dark Sisters follows one woman’s dangerous attempt to escape her life as a member of the FLDS Church (Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints), a sect that split from mainstream Mormonism in the early 20th Century largely because of the LDS Church’s renunciation of polygamy. A one-act opera, sung in English, Dark Sisters is a featured event of the annual Boston University Fall Fringe Festival.

Approximate Running Time: one hour with no intermission
