Play Notes


Prayer for the French Republic | Utah Premiere

by Joshua Harmon

October 25-November 9, 2024

Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre

Fresh off its hit Broadway run and winner of the 2022 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award

In 2016, a curious American student named Molly seeks to connect with her family in France. When her cousin becomes the victim of an anti-Semitic attack, Molly’s uncle Charles—who immigrated from Algeria—decides to move to Israel. This earns the dismay of Molly’s anti-Zionist uncle Patrick, all set against the growing threat of political extremism in France. Timely and poignant, Prayer for the French Republic had several extended sold-out runs both Off and on Broadway. Deadline calls the production “blistering, funny, and heartbreaking,” and The Wall Street Journal said it was “easily the finest play of the Broadway season.” Don’t miss your chance to see one of the hottest plays in the nation—in one of its first productions outside of New York.
