After stunning audiences on both Broadway and the West End, winning 9 Tony Awards - including Best Musical - and even winning a Grammy award for the soundtrack, The Book of Mormon is rapidly becoming a theatrical phenomenon. Comedy duo Trey Parker and Matt Stone - the geniuses behind the animated hit South Park - joined forces to create this hilarious musical that breathes three-dimensional, all-singing, all-dancing life into the absurdities of Mormon dogma, whilst simultaneously being incredibly rude, potentially offensive and above all, unexpectedly endearing.
★★★★★'It's hilarious. God have mercy upon my soul' Sunday Telegraph
★★★★'Indecently funny. The killer whale of comedy' Evening Standard
★★★★ 'Brash, crude, and offensive. A massive hit' The Independent
★★★★★'Fearlessly stuffed with foul expletives, full-frontal filth, profound political incorrectness and blasphemy. Screamingly entertaining.'

The Book of Mormon tells the story of two Salt Lake City Mormons sent as missionaries to Uganda, hoping for a few baptisms and a couple of conversions. Instead, they are welcomed by some very harsh realities and a particularly unpleasant warlord.
