The Book of Mormon tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda, where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population. Naive and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share their scriptures—which only one of them knows very well—but have trouble connecting with the locals, who are worried about famine, poverty, and AIDS. The show lampoons organized religion and traditional musical theatre, reflecting Stone and Parker’s lifelong fascination with Mormonism and musicals.
