Abstract

The director of "The Mantle of the Prophet," a poetry drama staged at Brigham Young University in July 1960, discusses the unique aspect of the play. The drama, focusing more on language than character with a simple set, invites the audience to make a personal connection with a critical event in Mormon history—the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum Smith.
