mother daughter sisterwife by Lauren Tuvell at St. Ann's Warehouse
On July 12, 1843, Joseph Smith, founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, had a revelation that would change the course of history. Now, almost two centuries later, mother daughter sisterwife excavates the timewarped and dust-tumbled memories of the pioneer women who fearlessly forged west as they settled into the controversial practice of plural marriage.
Based on the collection of poems, Glossolalia, by Marita Dachsel.
Conceived by Lauren Tuvell and built collaboratively with Allison Altman,

grew up in Columbia, South Carolina. She spent her childhood performing in community theater and dressing up playing "ms. ashley and ms. leah," a game which involved knocking on neighbor's doors asking them to invite her in for tea and cookies. She loves the outdoors, carrying on conversations with dogs, and a damn fine cup of coffee.
In May of 2017, Allison completed her MFA training at the University of North Carolina Professional Acting Training Program. Before she graduated she filmed an industrial as a featured role and narrator with the US Air Force advocating for sexual assault awareness and prevention.
In 2017, Allison received a BroadwayWorld Raleigh Award nomination for her work in PlayMaker's Repertory Company's production of The Crucible.
