BORDERLANDS is about coming out in Mormon culture - stepping forward, admitting who you are, telling the uncomfortable.

What does one do with questions within a faith that doesn't allow for them?

Eric Samuelsen's most personal play explores the process of coming out in Mormon culture - just not in the usual sense - as Dave (Kirt Bateman), his sister Phyllis (Teri Cowan), the woman he'd like to date (Gail, played by Stephanie Howell) and her gay nephew Brian (Topher Rasmussen) journey into unexpected honesty. Directed by Jerry Rapier.
