A Mormon history play based on the conversion experiences of an Armenian couple. When the Mormons first ventured into Armenia, now Turkey, the missionaries were met with mistrust, suspicion and occasional violence. Those who accepted the messages from the missionaries were often split from their families and, because of the need for discretion, were from then on unknown to one another. This is the true story of one family's encounter with Mormonism -- the story of a dividing and a parting -- but also a tale of gathering and arriving.
First produced at Brigham Young University in 1969, directed by Charles W. Whitman. This is considered one of a few watershed plays in the development of contemporary Mormon drama. This is considered to have broken through into realistic treatment of Mormonism in drama. It was purchased by the Church for distribution to wards and stakes.
