About the Author

Thomas F. Rogers -- A former director of the BYU Honors Program, Thomas F. Rogers is professor emeritus of Russian language and literature at Brigham Young University and the author of more than a score of plays, many on Mormon subjects.
In 1995-1996 GOD'S FOOLS was produced (in translation) by a professional repertory theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, where Rogers was then serving as an LDS mission president. He also played the role of the American double spy Cooper in that production. During that mission he directed LDS Church members in a stage adaptation of Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov and a Russian language version of HUEBENER. The play has also since been produced in Finland in the Finnish language, while a German translation still awaits forthcoming performances in that language.
At BYU and in Provo, Utah, Rogers directed the premiere productions of Robert Vincek's For the Lions to Win, Thom Duncan's Matters of the Heart and Eric Samuselsen's Accommodations and in Bountiful, Utah, a production of HUEBENER. Besides numerous productions in both Russian and German for the BYU Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages, he has directed Chekhov's The Three Sisters (in German) for Deutsches Teater Salt Lake City, where he also performed as an actor, and Synge's Playboy of the Western World, Pirandello's It Is So If You Think So and Pinter's The Caretaker for the BYU Department of Theatre.
Rogers studied at the Yale School of Drama and holds degrees from the University of Utah, Yale, and Georgetown. He has also studied theatre in Poland and Russian at Moscow State University and taught at Howard University in Washington, D.C., and the University of Utah. He has intensively studied some ten languages and had extensive residences in Russia, Eastern Europe, Germany, Austria, Sweden, the Baltic states, Armenia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, India, China and the Middle East. He and his wife Merriam are the parents of seven children, thirty-eight grandchildren and, so far, three great grandchildren. They reside in Bountiful, Utah.
