SAFE tells the story of Aubrey and Sam, two Mormon women who meet at BYU, and their evolving relationship with each other, themselves, and their faith. It is a nonlinear story, showing the past and present lives of these characters. There are three timelines: Aubrey and Sam’s freshman year at BYU as well as Sam’s LDS Mission; Aubrey and Jensen’s last miscarriage; and the present.
F, 20s. Born and raised in American Fork, Utah. Somewhat innocent during her first semester at BYU, with righteous desires and a firm testimony. Her faith changes significantly throughout the play. (One scene includes appearing in underwear.)
F, 20s. A “cool” Mormon from California, and Aubrey’s roommate during her freshmen year. Sarcastic and smart. A badass with a strong moral compass. Her parents sent her to BYU in hopes that the spiritual atmosphere would help her overcome her “same-gender attraction.”
M, 20s. Aubrey’s high school boyfriend, who also attends BYU with her. Not as cool, smart, or as kind of a guy as he thinks he is. His “good Mormon boy” front covers a sense of entitlement.
M, 20s. Sam’s husband later in the story. A convert to the Church. Kind, but takes Sam for granted a little bit. Good intentions, but not as attentive as he could be.
