A Prayer for Owen Meany

The 2012 Freshman Show

by Simon Bent (adapted from the novel by John Irving)

Poster of A Prayer for Owen Meany

I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice- not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother’s death, but because he is the reason I believe in God; I am a Christian because of Owen Meany. With a cast of over thirty characters, Irving’s modern American classic explodes onto the stage in a paradoxical challenge to memory, life, God, and prayer.If you would like to be involved in this production in any capacity, please e-mail the producer at jonathan.lian@yale.eduPurchase tickets: https://ticketturtle.com/index.php?ticketing=yale
