Inquisitive Theatre took Questions of the Heart on tour this Fall!

What is Questions of the Heart?
Questions of the Heart is an exploration of the often painful intersection of religious faith and sexuality. Ben Abbott—a straight, practicing Mormon—interviewed a dozen men and women of his faith who are gay (or are closely connected to someone who is) and crafted this play based on both the interviews and his journey coming to terms with them. It is a solo performance: Abbott plays the Interviewer as well as the subjects, taking dialogue directly from the transcripts and displaying the vast range of experiences, attitudes, and journeys of those he interviewed.

**Special Note on Age Appropriateness**
We’ve been asked a lot recently about the appropriate age level for the show.  There’s nothing in Questions of the Heart that would make it inappropriate for young teenagers or preteens. As they say in public radio, “it does acknowledge the existence of sex,” but certainly nothing explicit, and no profanity. Parents who have seen the show in the past have come back again and brought their kids as young as 9. If you’re comfortable talking about the subject matter itself with them, they’ll be fine.
