Missa Solemnis or The Play About Henry

directed by Linda S. Nelson

Missa Solemnis or The Play About Henry 

On the morning of February 25, 2000, a young man named Henry Stuart Matis drove to the Mormon Ward House in Los Altos, California, placed a gun to his head, and ended his life. This provocative drama is based on the actual events of gay Mormon Henry Stuart Matis, who had engaged his life in a false dilemma: either one is gay or one is Christian. As he believed he was Christian, he believed he could never be gay. Trapped between his same sex attraction and the power of his LDS faith, Henry would make the ultimate sacrifice to remove the chains of his mortality.
