1857 Utah: 127 West-bound pioneers die in the Mountain Meadows Massacre. The mass murder haunts Mormon daughters Lavinia and Hettie as they grow from friends, to mothers, to sister-wives. Tethered to their polygamous doctrine and to the men who killed in its name, can the women reconcile their faith with the truth?

GAN-e-meed Theatre Project presents Julie Jensen’s Two-Headed, an intimate exploration of the friendship of two women on the frontier of Mormonism. They struggle to define themselves within the oppressive patriarchy and complex entanglements of plural marriage which define their culture. Becky Webber (Horatio in 2011’s Hamlet) directs Executive Artistic Director SerahRose Roth and Kara Manson in this gripping historical drama. 


The show’s running time is one hour and 30 minutes with no intermission.  


Saturday, May 19, following the 3:00pm performance: 

Pulitzer Prize winner Laurel Thatcher Ulrich (Harvard 300th Anniversary University Professor, author of Well-behaved Women Seldom Make History) will appear after the show to discuss the reality of women’s lives in Pioneer times.
