EXIT 27 by Aleks Merilo

Presented by Southwest Theatre Productions at Boyd Vance Theatre, Austin TX

Jan 22 - 31 2016
EXIT 27 by Aleks Merilo

A Story Based on True Life Events.

Over a ten year period 1,400 teenage boys, the “Lost Boys of Utah,” have been dropped off at exit number 27 near the Arizona-Utah border by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) to atone for their sins. Most don’t survive. EXIT 27 is the story of four of those young boys, their attempt to become “good again,” and how a young girl’s visit from the forbidden town of Hurricane changes everything.
